Valdes wants Juventus

December 10, 2014 - 11:05 pm

Victor Valdes has offered himself to Juventus in January, according to Sky Sport Italia.

The former Barcelona keeper was set join AS Monaco but has spent several months out of action following a serious knee injury back in March. Following successful knee surgery and rehabilitation the veteran keeper has been training with Manchester United for the past month.

While United were thought to be signing the player, Sky Sports are reporting that Valdes has proposed himself as an understudy to Gigi Buffon this season.

While it doesn’t seem completely impossible to imagine Valdes at Juventus, Marco Storari stayed with the Bianconeri in the summer despite the chances to play first team football elsewhere. It doesn’t seem likely Juve would want to sign a keeper on the road to recovery when they have such a capable and loved understudy already at the club.

    Love watching Storari run up and down the sideline yelling at the fourth ref. Also a more than capable back up

    Ditto to both of the comments before me. Thanks, but no thanks Valdes. Keep looking.

    And Storari is awesome. I dont think theres ever been a bench player that loves his role as much as Storari. We should have as lead cheer leader :p

      I would love it as much as he does, maybe even more. Getting to watch free Juve games from the best seat, getting paid to watch them, getting to know the players and the coaches.

    …but we don’t want Valdes, we have a loved back-up and we have young talents to take over in the long term

    Fucking hate Roma crashed out of CL 🙁 they deserved to go through. From a more selfish point of view it ain’t bad though, as sole Serie A representatives we’ll be getting some good money from the CL again and goodness knows we need that. Fingers crossed we can survive the next 2 games and hopefully Inter Napoli, Fiorentina, Roma and Torino can progress far in the EL!

      I’ve given up on serie a in Europe. My focus is solely on juve in the cl now. Roma weren’t able to fucking hold a 0-0 draw in their own home they deserve getting kicked out.

        I think Roma didn’t do too bad, Bayern slaughtered everything in their group so it was always going to be a duel between City and Roma to advance, City has more budget and more CL experience than Roma so I don’t know, they could have won. Look at what they did to CSKA Moscow

        I hope Juve can win the next round and anything after that will be a bonus, I don’t see us winning the CL yet, unless we pull off some great shit and have Lady Luck on our side.

        With 5 Serie A teams in EL, I hope Italy can gain some coefficient points back, since EL and CL results are equal in value it should be possible. At least one team should make a European final (but it better won’t be merda, huehue)

          Even Merda i’d hope for to win the EL. Better in Italian hands than foreign hands.

          And Roma gave it away against CSKA. They could have easily played that match on possession in the last minutes, but instead they let CSKA have the ball and defended the last minutes. That bit them in the ass and that’s why they’re out.

            not really though, as Garcia also said, wouldn’t have changed much for their game against City, as he thinks it’s crazy to sit back and let City make the game (I agree)

        ”I’ve given up on serie a in Europe. ”

        Why are you still following the Serie A then.. As Juve fan you should have some sympathy for the league and it’s teams.

    Hell no. Storari is way too loyal to replace him. Only if he wants to go himself.
