Victor Valdes does not appear to be letting his lack of game-time at Manchester United get him down, if his latest post on social media is anything to go by.

The Red Devils goalkeeper has not featured for the Premier League outfit since suffering a fall-out with Louis van Gaal towards the end of last season.

The Spaniard’s future was a heavy source of speculation during the summer months, with Chelsea touted as a possible destination for the shot-stopper.

However, the former Barcelona star failed to secure a move away from Old Trafford and has remained at United until now.

Valdes looked in good spirits with his wife on Friday night as his United team-mates prepared for their FA Cup third-round clash with Sheffield United at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

He uploaded the picture above onto his personal Instagram account and simply wrote: “#love.”

United returned to winning ways in Valdes’ absence with a 2-1 victory over Swansea City at Old Trafford last weekend.
