VIDEO: Balague reveals Victor Valdes loves Liverpool

Guillem Balague has suggested Liverpool are the favourite club of Victor Valdes.

Spanish football expert Guillem Balague has revealed that former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes loves Liverpool.

The Anfield side are favourites to secure Valdes on a deal as he became a free agent after leaving Barca at the end of last season.

No side seems to have been prepared to take a risk on him due to a bad knee injury, with Monaco previously pulling out of plans to offer him a contract.

Several reports have suggested that Valdes’ representatives and Liverpool are in talks over a deal, with the Spaniard free to conclude a move outside the transfer window as he doesn’t have a contract with another club.

He’ll most likely come in initially as back up to current number one at Liverpool Simon Mignolet, but he has the experience and quality to step into the side when needed across any competition.

Valdes is still only 32-years-old and could sign a long term contract at the club to see out the rest of his playing days.
