Barcelona goalkeeper could move to Anfield in the summer.
Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes could be on his way to Anfield to join Liverpool in the summer, according to the Sunday People.
Valdes has been an integral part of the success story at Barcelona, winning five La Liga titles and lifting the Champions League on three occasions since making the number one jersey his own in 2003.
But the 30-year-old goalkeeper, who like Liverpool’s own stopper Pepe Reina has had to play second fiddle to Iker Casillas in the all-conquering Spanish national team, has just 18 months of his contract left to run and Barcelona may be ready to cash in on him in the summer.
He is rated around £16million, however, which may put off Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers, while Manchester City – another club linked with a move for Valdes – would also be reluctant to shell out that figure for a players who would be back-up to England international Joe Hart.
Liverpool have also been on the trail of young England goalkeeper Jack Butland, who is being tracked by a host of other Premier League clubs. Birmingham want £6million for the 19-year-old, who is also interesting Southampton, Fulham, Everton and West Ham.
