The Belgian’s performances have drawn criticism for some time, with his error-prone approach and questionable distribution often detracting from his top class shot-stopping ability.
Klopp may have only been at Anfield a matter of weeks, but despite some solid defensive showings from his side he’s believed to be looking for a new goalkeeper ahead of January, and reports claim that Valdes is the player he wants.
The 33-year-old ex-Barca man is currently in the wilderness at United after falling out with manager Louis van Gaal due to an alleged refusal to represent the club’s U-21 side in a bid to get his fitness levels up.
He is currently training away from the rest of the Red Devils’ first-team stars and has not been included in a single match-day squad this term, even when David de Gea was also banished to the stands amid links with Real Madrid.
A move is, however, somewhat unlikely, with reports having previously indicated that United are not willing to let him leave to join a rival English side.
Further to this, the last player to move between Anfield and Old Trafford was Phil Chisnall in 1964, heading from Manchester to Merseyside in a deal worth £25,000 – he was only the ninth player to do so in history.
