Former Barcelona Victor Valdes is to train with Manchester United, having been tipped for a move to rivals Liverpool.

Liverpool appear destined to miss out on the signing of free agent Victor Valdes.

The Telegraph confirmed yesterday that the former Barcelona star had been invited to train with rivals Manchester United.

Valdes is currently recovering from a serious knee injury, which scuppered his chance of a high-earning free agent move to Monaco, and preceded his release from the La Liga side.

Liverpool had been strongly connected with signing Valdes as a free agent, as competition for under-fire Simon Mignolet.

At United he is only training, but if he can prove his fitness, there is every chance Louis van Gaal could offer him a deal.

United do not need a first choice goalkeeper with David de Gea in superb form, but as a back-up, he would certainly be an upgrade on Anders Lindegaard, who really needs to move on to go and play first team football at this stage of his career.

Having an experienced winner in the dressing room will help United, and it's exactly what Liverpool need right now.
