Victor Valdes remains determined to sign with Manchester United.
The former Barcelona goalkeeper, as he recovers from knee surgery earlier this year, has spent the past six weeks training at United’s Carrington HQ.
El Mundo Deportivo says Valdes was back home in Barcelona on the weekend, but only to see family and visit mentors as he continues to work towards the target of signing for United.
United boss Louis van Gaal is eager for the deal to happen, but nothing will be offered to Valdes until he proves his fitness.
David Moyes’ Real Sociedad is also monitoring developments.
