Premier League side Manchester United are set to finalize the deal of former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes as they have offered him a contract.
Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has offered him a one and a half year deal and it is likely that Valdes will accept this offer.
The Spanish stopper Valdes has been in link with the Red Devils since the summer but due to his injury problems Louis van Gaal delayed the deal. He suffered cruciate ligament injury earlier in 2014 before being released by Barcelona at the end of the last season.
Now the reports have revealed that the English side will finally seal his move. Valdes also trained with Manchester United few months ago.
The 32-year-old is a free agent since his exit from Barcelona. He played 12 seasons and won several trophies including La Liga and Champions League at the Camp Nou.
Spanish media Mundo Deportivo claimed that the goalkeeper is now set to seal his move after remaining sidelined for almost eight months.
Serie A side Juventus and Ligue One outfit Monaco are also interested in his services.
It seems too be first winter signing for The Red Devils. Valdes will be used as a back up keeper.
