Liverpool’s long-awaited move for Victor Valdes may be back on, with reports from the Daily Star suggesting that the goalkeeper has accepted a pay cut on the £90,000-per-week wages he was on at Barcelona.
The Reds’ swoop for the 32-year-old Spaniard appeared to be off earlier this week amid talk that issues surrounding personal terms and potential trial to test his injured knee had deterred the experienced stopper.
However, reports now suggest that Valdes is so eager to get back into football that he’s willing to reduce his earnings in order to join Brendan Rodgers’ side.
The World Cup winner is currently without a club after seeing out his contract at Barca over the summer, and a long-term ACL problem has prevented him from securing a new club – Monaco pulled out of a deal due to the fitness issues the player has.
It’s understood that the deal on the table is a short-term one, with options to extend Valdes’ stay should he stay injury free.
Brendan Rodgers is thought to be keen to draft in a new gaolie after growing concerned by Simon Mignolet’s erratic showings.
