So Man United have signed former Barcelona stopper Victor Valdes on a two year deal, presumably as back up for current No.1 David de Gea.
But some Man United fans are getting worried. What if it means de Gea’s on his way out. He has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid next summer, which half explains why United have moved for Valdes.
Some Man United fans are still buzzing about the capture and believe it’s a good thing they’ve got two world class goalies on their books. But if de Gea does end up leaving next summer, then it United will almost be replicating their rivals Liverpool – if they finish in the top four that is.
Finally get back in to the Champions League after some time away during a transitional period. Then immediately sell your best player. United fans have been laughing at Liverpool this season. Well, the boot may be back on the other foot soon…
If we're doing a favor on Valdes, it's okay. Otherwise I wouldn't like to see Lindegaard sold/pushed down the pecking order. Long term #mufc

Looks as if Valdes will join United.. Hopefully its not a sign that De Gea will leave

I'm buzzing we've got valdes

Valdes will sign a 2 years contract. So in 2016 both De Gea and Valdes will be free agent. So we are not signing Valdes to replace De Gea.

In my opinion, even Lindegaard is better than Valdes.

Changing DDG for Valdes is like changing… I am out of metaphores. I just can't.

Victor valdes is rotten. Do not sell De Gea

So.. United close to Valdes.. That would allow De Gea to move to Madrid.. Which in turn would free Bale for United.. And bring Reus to Real.

If they've signed Valdes to replace Dave I'll be gutted.
