Valdes deal to Liverpool is off?

DEAL'S OFF? Liverpool's bid to sign former Barcelona keeper Valdes collapses

October 12, 2014 By Michelle Bonsu
The former Blaugrana keeper looked to be en route to England only to see the deal suddenly fail to go through.

Earlier this year during the summer's transfer window, Liverpool were closely linked with QPR's Loic Remy, with the French international keen on making a switch due to his desire to play Champions League football this season. However, things suddenly took an abrupt U-turn when the Reds decided to scupper the deal, with the reason eventually being revealed as an apparent failed medical.

And now, it appears that the Premier League runners-up have again been unable to close another deal, with the target this time being former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes. The veteran Spaniard had been out of contract since suffering what was previously thought to be a career-ending injury during his final season with the Blaugrana, but recovered sufficiently enough to be classified as a free agent.

Valdes' career looked to be over this past spring, but appears to have successfully made a comeback

Brendan Rodgers was keen for the 32-year-old to ungergo a trial due to his knee problem and as a way for Liverpool to be fully confident as to whether to bring him on board as another option to current no. 1 Simon Mignolet.

However, Valdes reportedly snubbed the request, despite still being without a club after departing Camp Nou at the end of last season, leading some to wonder about his actual fitness levels following his catastrophic injury this past spring.

The long-serving was also linked with a move to Ligue 1 outfit Monaco this past June, only to see that deal fall through after he failed a medical. Hence, it remains to be seen whether Liverpool will attempt again to bring him on board or turn their attentions elsewhere after this latest development.
