Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has hinted at a shock switch to Manchester United, having implied that he will soon be ready for a return to first team action, as reported by the Daily Star.
Despite being consistently linked with a switch to Liverpool in the press, Valdes began training with the Old Trafford side last month in an attempt to rebuild his fitness.
He underwent surgery in March to deal with significant damage to his anterior cruciate ligament, missing out on the World Cup and an agreed switch to French side AS Monaco as a result.
Louis van Gaal invited him to train with the Red Devils in the build up to his first team return.
It now looks as though he could make that return with Man Utd, with the player suggesting that he is almost ready for action.
Great training session Today. Almost Ready! Thanks for your supportive messages throughout these months. They have helped me a lot!

If he can convince Van Gaal that he is fit, a permanent deal might be on the cards.
