Manchester United trialist Victor Valdes to be offered reunion with Ronaldinho in Mexico

Victor Valdes

Querétaro FC of Mexico are keen on former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes.

Goalkeeper Victor Valdes has been a free agent since leaving his beloved Barcelona this summer.

The Spanish international announced his decision to leave Barcelona long before his contract expired as he was keen on a new challenge away from the Nou Camp. But he then suffered a horrific knee injury, ruling him out for several months.

A deal with AS Monaco collapsed because of his knee troubles and he has also been linked with Arsenal and Liverpool in recent months.

At the moment he is training with Manchester United. United boss Louis van Gaal gave Valdes his Barcelona debut and has happily allowed him to join in training in order to work on his fitness and bring his knee up to scratch.

He was recently snapped in training for the first time with Manchester United and despite the general message being that of an old friend offering another a chance to recover the rumours persist that Valdes could sign for United.

The Spanish international wants to play in one of Europe's top leagues. However most teams have a designated number one goalkeeper and Valdes' best option might be to play back up and mentor to fellow countryman David De Gea.

But it looks like he might have another opportunity coming his way - in Mexico.

Mexican club Querétaro recently caused a fuss by snapping up former Barcelona team-mate Ronaldinho on a free transfer and would like to add the former Barcelona custodian to their ranks.

While it seems an unlikely scenario the stopper would get to play regular football, get paid well and speak his mother tongue in Spanish-speaking Mexico.

It is reported in Spain and Mexico that the club's owner Olegario Vazquez Aldir will be travelling to England to speak to Valdes about a potential switch and try and make him an offer he can't refuse.

So dark and dreary Manchester or sunny Mexico. A no-brainer?
