Victor Valdes is to train with Manchester United as the former Barcelona goalkeeper works on his fitness during his recovery from a knee injury.

The Spaniard, currently a free agent after leaving Camp Nou in the summer, has been offered the chance to link up with the Red Devils as he continues his rehabilitation.

A United statement read: “Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has offered the 32-year-old former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes a chance to complete his rehabilitation from a knee injury and to work his way back to fitness with the club.

“Valdes, a free agent, will have his recovery supervised by the United medical staff before training with the first team, as he bids to regain full fitness.”

Valdes has been linked with a transfer to Liverpool in recent weeks, and it is not clear if United intend to offer the shot-stopper a contract.

The 32-year-old has been out of action since suffering a knee ligament injury back in March.
