Not long before transfer window opens and although Sir Alex Ferguson says he is not a big fan of the January opportunity, he has been known to come up with the odd surprise!

Newspapers say Pepe Reina is a target. True he is unsettled at United but would he move to United knowing the "rumpus" that caused. Also United have earmarked young Anders Lindergaard as the long time successor to Van Der Sar but Reina much better at the moment.

The other name that keeps getting mentioned at Old Trafford is the Chilean winger Alexis Sanchez. I heard that Inter were going to sign him but he is waiting to see if United move for him first. Not sure about truth in this because Antonio Valencia is making a quicker recovery than first thought and I would have thought Sir Alex might be prioritising  a centre half and midfielder but who knows.

Anderson is starting to show a lot more of his undoubted ability but the defence is key for United if they want another title. Sunderland were not great today but United's defence was absolutely solid, unlike much of this season. Anyway we will find out a bit more at Birmingham on Tuesday as they will be tested a lot more by a fresh side with plenty of time to prepare.

Anyway good luck to fans at all clubs in this festive period. It could go a long way to deciding your season.

The Victor Valdes story is quite interesting. He is a free agent as his move from Barcelona to Monaco broke down when he got injured. I think he had a bad cruciate injury.

Anyway Liverpool have been monitoring him and not surprisingly renewed their interest with Mignolet's poor performances of late. Despite all that Valdes has chosen to train with United and to regain his fitness. No suggestion that we will sign him but its not a bad thing him being about the place imo.
Report peter the butcher October 23, 2014 11:35 PM BST
This is the official line on it

“Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has offered the 32-year-old former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes a chance to complete his rehabilitation from a knee injury and to work his way back to fitness with the club, Valdes, a free agent, will have his recovery supervised by the United medical staff before training with the first team, as he bids to regain full fitness.”
Report peter the butcher October 23, 2014 11:43 PM BST
If he proves his fitness I hope we sign him as its a win win situation with no transfer fee involved and we can sign him outside of the transfer window as he is out of contract.

He was an excellent keeper in his time and is still only around 32 years old which is no age for a keeper these days
Report the_don October 24, 2014 8:05 AM BST
I dont think De Gea has looked as impressive this season as last, with the obvious exception of the Everton game. Having changes in goalkeeper coaches won't have helped but to me he is still learning and will be our No 1 for a long time.
For a long while I felt Valdez at Barcelona was picked for being good on the ball (for a keeper) rather than any actual goalkeeper skills! Over the last couple of seasons though he developed into a much better keeper. I'm not too keen on Lindegard as our reserve keeper but I don't think Valdez would stick around too long if he wasn't getting a fair few games. Even if he was to sign til the end if the season I'm sure his experience could help De Gea and the club out.

Valdes seems like a good move. Get him in for free, have a look at him.  Spanish will soon be the fist language at the club the way things are going.

I strongly suspect DDG will be at Real Madrid next season.  Navas the Costa Rican keeper hasn't got a look in there this season despite his WC heroics and despite him being best keeper in Spain last year for Levante (we should consider a swap for him if RM come for DDG).  Casillas looks shaky but he is a formidable presence at the Club and in the dressing room, akin to Raul, and that stands to him in selection.

Pete disappears for his gastric band operation, the moral compass is left unguarded... and look what happens.

Warren - as someone who cheerfully uses the word 'conservatory' when 'shed' would suffice, is it really too much effort to go for the extra 4 letters - "pakie"?
I mean, really? That's not to mention the irrelevance of the race of the bloke in question.
If you don't quite see that, may I point you in the direction of the vast majority of threads on here where sexism, xenophobia and casual racism are de rigueur.

PBK is a good example - he goes on other threads for his right wing rants. On here he's learned "fork on the left, knife on the right". We don't want his progress corrupting.
