The management at Old Trafford are said to be getting increasingly weary of current goalkeeper David De Gea’s increasingly erratic performances and are ready to seek out alternatives in order to provide greater competition for the young Spaniard and his understudy Anders Lindegaard.
While there is little doubt about De Gea’s shot-stopping ability, there remains considerable question marks over the player’s skill under the aerial ball. De Gea was put at fault by many for allowing Tottenham to score their last gasp equaliser deep in to injury time on Sunday.
Valdes recently announced that he would not renew his contract at Barcelona which has sparked a search at the Nou Camp for a replacement. It is understood that De Gea is still highly-rated in Spain, despite his inconsistent performances in the Premier League and that may pave the way for a swap-deal involving De Gea and Valdes.
Real Madrid are also said to be interested in the 22 year old goalkeeper, with the future of current Spanish no.1 Iker Casillas looking increasingly under threat. It is thought Madrid may have the upper hand in any negotiations as De Gea’s girlfriend is currently residing in the Spanish capital.
