Reports are out claiming that Newcastle United boss Steve McClaren is seeking talks with Manchester United outcast Victor Valdes.
The People says McClaren’s season took another turn for the worse during the international break when Tim Krul was ruled out for the season with a knee injury.
Now, he will see if he can sign out-of-favour Manchester United outcast Valdes to solve his crisis.
The 33-year-old had a bust-up with United boss Louis van Gaal over claims he refused to play for the second string and is now behind David De Gea, Sergio Romero and Sam Johnstone in the pecking order.
Manchester United are happy to let him go and are prepared to rip up his deal — providing he does not join one of their direct rivals.
