Manchester City are reportedly lining up a surprise bid for Middlesborough's Victor Valdes as a back-up option in goal for next season.
The Middlesbrough goalkeeper has spoken out about his nightmare stint at Old Trafford, where he was frozen out of the first team by former manager Louis van Gaal.
On the 10th of June, all the Premier League sides handed in their lists pertaining to the squad members for the following season. Some of the high-profile names to face the axe were Kolo Toure, Victor Valdes and Emmanuel Adebayor.
This was hardly what Valdes had imagined when he signed on for Manchester United in 2014 on a free transfer, after a stellar career at Barcelona. But, it all went sour after reports emerged that Van Gaal had placed him on the transfer list in the summer 2015 transfer window after he allegedly refused to play with the reserve squad.
Manchester United's in-form midfielder Juan Mata is disappointed by the treatment that fellow international teammate Victor Valdes is receiving at Old Trafford, following an alleged fallout with manager Louis Van Gaal.
