Victor Valdes reportedly has offers from Monaco and Manchester City
Barcelona goalkeeper, Victor Valdes recently stated that he will not discuss his future beyond when his contract expires with the Blaurgrana on 30th June 2014, but it is reported that Monaco and Manchester City have both made offers to the La Masia graduate.
In a recent press conference, Valdes confirmed that there are offers on the table and when he does reach an agreement with a new club, they will announce it when the time is right.
“My destination depends on a lot of things. I will go wherever I will go, which has yet to be decided. I have to respect the players and the the situation of the club I’ll be heading to. There are offers on the table which my representative has presented, but I have decided on nothing yet. I have to respect Barca as well. I will not make anything public that could prove negative for us.”
Spanish sports daily, Marca has now revealed that those offers are from French Ligue 1 side, Monaco, which has already been well established and English Premier League giants, Manchester City.
Manchester City is now run by the former directors of Barcelona and are keen to add Valdes to the squad, but face a serious road block in their efforts.
Current Manchester City starting goalkeeper, Joe Hart is one of the most beloved players by the fans and England and while he has gotten his starting job back for the time being, his spot is far from guaranteed, regardless of the upcoming 2014 World Cup.
Manchester City are considering selling Hart, knowing the uproar it would cause amongst the fans, but replacing him only when it is clear he is not fit for the role, with Valdes would be the only way the move could be looked upon as a good thing.
