Man Utd complete star signing

Victor Valdes news

Valdes joins United

Manchester United have successfully sealed their first signing of the winter transfer window.

Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes had been training with the Red Devils in recent months in order to recuperate from an anterior cruciate ligament which he sustained at the back-end of last season.

Valdes have now agreed an 18-month contract at the Mancunian giants, and will offer stiff competition to in-form David de Gea for the number one spot.

This is what he had to say on the transfer :  "It is a real honour to sign for Manchester United. I would like to thank Louis van Gaal and the club for allowing me to do my rehabilitation and to train with the team at the Aon Training Complex.

"From my short time here I can already see this is a very special club. I worked with Louis van Gaal during my time at FC Barcelona and to have the opportunity to work with him here at Manchester United is a dream come true."

Valdes made 535 appearances for Barca between 2002 and 2014.
