Manchester United: High-profile player reaches agreement with Turkish giants

According to reports in Turkey, Besiktas have agreed terms with both Manchester United and Victor Valdes over the transfer of the World Cup-winning goalkeeper.

Futbol Arena‘s Ertan Suzgun [via Turkish Football], have reported that the Super Lig giants have agreed a two-year deal for the player, with the option to extend the deal by one year.

There has already been a considerable exodus of Red Devils stars to Turkey this summer, with Portuguese winger Nani and Robin van Persie both heading to Besiktas’ rivals Fenerbahce.

There has been considerable interest in the Spain keeper’s services from the Super Lig, with Sport noting that both Fener and Galatasaray have been keen on Valdes.

The latest reports come in contrast to HaberTurk’s claims [also via Turkish Football] that Senol Gunes, the current Besiktas coach, had confirmed that he would be continuing with current keepers Tolga Zengin and Cenk Gonen, rather than bringing in the former Barcelona star.

Regardless of rumours linking his United rival David De Gea with a move to Real Madrid [ESPN], Valdes—who could have been considered as a successor for his compatriot—looks certain to end his stay at Old Trafford imminently.

Sergio Romero has impressed between the sticks for the 20-time English champions so far this season, and having burned his bridges with Louis van Gaal [Sport], Valdes appears to have no future in Manchester.
