Valdes to join United... as De Gea replacement!

Cape Town - English media are speculating that Victor Valdes' imminent Old Trafford move is due to David De Gea's possible exit.

The Independent are reporting that Victor Valdes will sign for Manchester United, not as backup to David De Gea but rather as his replacement.

De Gea's contract expires at the end of next season and there are growing fears that Spanish shot-stopper will be lured back to the Spanish capital with Real Madrid interested in his services. Los Blancos are looking for a long-term successor to Iker Casillas.

Manchester United are now facing the situation of losing De Gea on a free transfer next season and that is the reason behind their move for the 32-year-old former Barcelona goalkeeper.

De Gea has been in a rich vein of form this season with a number of eye-catching performances for the Red Devils.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper has made over 130 appearances for United since joining from Atletico Madrid in £17.8 million move.
