Football fans are a funny bunch, aren’t they?
Man United are reportedly on the verge of announcing the free transfer of former Barcelona stopper Victor Valdes on a two-year contract. And aside from Man United fans expressing their concerns for David De Gea’s immediate Old Trafford future, they also think Valdes’ arrival has some kind of cryptic meaning.
It is no secret that Victor Valdes and Lionel Messi are close friends from their time together at Barcelona, which obviously means Man United are going sign Lionel Messi now.
Of course they aren’t! But try telling that to this bunch of dreaming Man United fans. I suppose you can’t blame them for being optimistic…

Agent Valdes can get to work on getting Messi to United. It's underway.

I guess we're signing Victor Valdes so that he can keep Lionel Messi company on cold winter nights in Manchester! 😉 http://t.co/kPnbDoCtrX

We only signed Valdes so it makes it easier for Messi to settle in when we sign him in the summer.

I think we all know what the agenda is with Valdes…… He'll be there to help his former Barca teammate Messi settle in when he arrives
I want a package deal # Valdes# Messi

Signing Victor Valdes to get Messi, Louis Van Gaal is an actual genius. Can't wait for Victor to tell Leo how good Paddy McNair is.
