Victor Valdes declines Manchester United contract offer?

A report claims that free agent Victor Valdes has declined a short-term offer to join Manchester United.

Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has reportedly turned down the chance to join Manchester United on a short-term deal.

The Spain international is currently a free agent after bringing to an end his 12-year stint at the Camp Nou in the summer, although a proposed move to Liverpool broke down earlier this month.

Valdes was yesterday offered the opportunity to train with the Red Devils as he aims to return to full fitness following a long-term injury layoff.

Despite being granted a lifeline by United, Spanish publication El Mundo Deportivo claims that the 32-year-old has declined the offer from manager Louis van Gaal as he does not want to be an understudy to David de Gea.

Valdes has not played a game since March due to a knee injury.
