Chelsea are considering making a move for out-of-favour Manchester United goalkeeper Victor Valdes, according to reports.
Valdes has made just two appearances for the Red Devils since joining the club from Barcelona late last year, and the Spaniard has endured a rocky relationship with United boss Louis van Gaal.
Van Gaal accused Valdes of refusing to play for United’s reserves and confirmed that the shot-stopper would be moved on from the club.
However, Valdes was not sold during the summer window and still remains part of United’s Premier League squad.
According to Fichajes [via Metro], Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is keen to swoop on the 33-year-old in the wake of Thibaut Courtois’ knee injury.
To sign Valdes before January, however, United must cancel the final year of the player’s contract in order to allow him to make the move to Stamford Bridge as a free agent.
