Alex Ferguson Hopes For A De Gea-Valdés Swap
According to The Times, Alex Ferguson is looking at the possibility of proposing a goalie swap with Fútbol Club Barcelona. After the announcement that Víctor Valdés is leaving Barça, the Scottish manager is contemplating the possibility of exchanging him for David De Gea.
The idea is that this coming summer, United would offer Barça a keeper who is young but already rich in experience from having played in top clubs like Altético de Madrid and Manchester United, hoping to exchange him for a world class shot-stopper in the form of Victor Valdés.
In United's last league game, at White Hart Lane, Tottenham came back to clinch a 1-1 draw with a last minute Clint Dempsey equaliser after De Gea made the mistake of coming out from goalmouth too far, and this might have just reignited Ferguson's doubts about the Spanish goalie.
