Barcelona’s goalkeeper Victor Valdes, is close of signing a deal with the English club, Manchester City. Valdes several time said that he wants new challenges and that this summer he is leaving the Catalan club.
According to the French L’equipe’s, Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes will likely continue his career at Manchester City, despite several other media reporting that his next destination is France and AS Monaco .
Victor Valdes (32) is an outgrowth of Barcelona FC soccer school where he spent his entire career . However, now Valdes is looking for new challenges, and he already confirmed that he will leave the Nou Camp at the end of the current season when his current contract expires.
For a long time it was speculated that he will sign for the French AS Monaco, but it seems that his new destination will be even richer club, Manchester City.
L’Equipe claims that the two sides are close to an agreement, but that the English side will have to pay a compensation to AS Monaco, with whom Valdes allegedly has already signed a pre-contract.
