Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has signed for Manchester United as “the number two goalkeeper”, said manager Louis van Gaal.
The 32-year-old Spain international has penned an 18-month deal, with the option of another year.
Valdes, 32, came through the ranks of the FC Barcelona youth system, making his senior debut in 2002.
Victor Valdes shared his views that it is a real honour to sign for Manchester United. He said that he would like to thank Louis van Gaal and the club for allowing him to do his rehabilitation and to train with the team at the Aon Training Complex. From my short time here I can already see this is a very special club.
Louis van Gaal said that he is delighted Victor has signed for the club. Victor is a very experienced goalkeeper and his record speaks for itself. He said on many occasions that Manchester United will always be interested in the best players. Van Gaal further added that Valdes had been “very impressive” during training.
