Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes trained with Manchester United again on Friday as he tries to earn himself a deal at Old Trafford going into 2015.
The 32-year-old had briefly stopped training with the club and it appeared any chance of a deal was gone but the Spanish stopper popped up at Carrington once again at the start of December.
With Anders Lindegaard still yet to feature for the first team under Louis van Gaal, rumours speculate the Danish keeper could leave the club in January with Valdes being prepared as De Gea’s new back-up.
Valdes would be another addition to ever-growing Spanish speaking group at Old Trafford after Ander Herrera, Radamel Falcao, Marcos Rojo and Angel Di Maria joined in the summer with Juan Mata joining almost 12 months ago.
The former Barcelona man would also provide quality back-up to De Gea in case of an injury or suspension and brings valuable experience and a spectacular list of achievements to the squad.
The latest reports suggest Valdes is almost match fit and could play in a behind closed doors game for United as soon as possible.
