Victor Valdes has caused plenty of confusion among Manchester United fans tonight by changing his Facebook and Twitter profile photos to the club’s crest.
The Spaniard’s exit from Man United this summer was considered inevitable after a fallout with Louis van Gaal that looked beyond repair after Valdes refused to play for the U21s last year.
However, Valdes may be hinting that the relationship has been patched up by changing his profile photos. It’s certainly left United fans scratching their heads.
It looked absolutely implausible that Valdes would remain at the club but could he and van Gaal have resolved their problems?
With Anders Lindegaard already confirmed as a West Brom player, David de Gea close to securing his move to Real Madrid and Keylor Navas likely to complete a move in the opposite direction, could Valdes staying at United end up being the biggest goalkeeping surprise this summer?
If he does stay, that very well might be the biggest surprise of all.
