Report: Liverpool want to sign Victor Valdes from Manchester United

Victor Valdes

Liverpool are said to be keen on signing Victor Valdes from Manchester United.

Liverpool remain interested in signing Victor Valdes from Manchester United, report The Sun.

The report states the Reds have the Spaniard on a shortlist of potential additions, and are keen to back up Simon Mignolet.

This is despite signing Adam Bogdan on a free transfer during the summer, and seeing the goalkeeper show his shot-stopping ability in a penalty shootout win over Carlisle United.

Valdes was signed by Manchester United last January as a free agent, having been without a club after getting injured and letting his Barcelona contract expire.

He has since played in just two Premier League games, of which one was a start, at the end of last season.

Seen as back-up for David de Gea, manager Louis van Gaal became frustrated with the former Spanish international, falling out with him and leaving him out of the club's pre-season tour to the US.

He was also omitted from the club's Champions League squad, and Sergio Romero was signed on a free transfer to supersede him in the pecking order.

Liverpool could benefit from signing a player of his experience, but Manchester United would have to agree to strengthen a rival, and that could be unlikely, especially if offers from abroad come in as an alternative.
