Valdes would have been re-united with Ronaldinho had he moved to Queretaro but Beltran admitted there was no agreement to bring the goalkeeper to Mexico.
Beltran also raised the question of Valdes’ fitness given that he has only returned to full training at Man United’s Carrington complex after a long time out injured.
“There is no agreement, it was not a good situation,” Beltran said.
“Also, the physical condition of Valdes after the operation was one of the points that had to be determined.”
There is also a suggestion that a disagreement over wage demands could have been a contributing factor in Queretaro quashing their interest in him.
From Man United’s perspective, less competition for Valdes’ signature if Louis van Gaal did want to sign him would be ideal. Of course, in reality, it may simply be the case that Valdes would choose United because of Van Gaal’s presence but competition always drives up the price of players, in this case Valdes’ wages as he is a free agent.
Whether United do make a move for Valdes depends on Anders Lindegaard’s uncertain future and having the ex-Barcelona goalkeeper as a backup to David de Gea certainly wouldn’t be a bad thing.
