Official! Middlesbrough Signs Former Barcelona Talisman
Middlesbrough have completed the signing of goalkeeper Victor Valdes after the Spanish international left Manchester United.
The former Barcelona man has signed a two-year contract with the newly-promoted side and becomes their fifth summer signing.
Valdes departed United after making just two appearances for the club under Louis van Gaal, having had a public falling-out with the Dutchman.
Valdes was accused of refusing to play for the club’s Under-21 side by Van Gaal, a claim he strenuously denied. He eventually made three appearances for the youth squad before spending the second half of last season on loan at Standard Liege.
Middlesbrough have made significant efforts to reshape their squad this summer, acquiring Viktor Fischer from Ajax, Bernardo Espinosa from Sporting Gijon, Jordan McGhee from Hearts and Marten de Roon from Atalanta.
