Former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes has accepted an offer to join Manchester United.
The Spain international, who has been training with United in his bid to recover from a serious knee injury, has agreed to an 18-month contract (plus a one year option). Valdes, 32, won six La Liga and three Champions League titles with Barcelona, before leaving at the end of last season when his contract expired. The deal could lead to reserve keeper Anders Lindegaard leaving Old Trafford. It also poses a question about the future of 24-year-old first-choice goalkeeper David De Gea, who was the club's player of the year last season and has excelled again this term. His contract is due to expire in 2016, although senior United sources have said they were relaxed about him signing an extension to that deal. Jan 8 - 1:11 PM

In an almost perfect day for Manchester United, their big stars grabbed the goals and their shot-stopper David De Gea was brilliant as the Red Devils won their sixth straight league game 3-0 over Liverpool.

Normally when there are multiple goals, the scorers will get the plaudits but a light has to be shined on the young Spanish keeper, who has really matured into one of the league's best stoppers and deserves as much credit as anyone for the turnaround at Old Trafford. As for the goals, Antonio Valencia delivered a crisp cross to Wayne Rooney who struck for his sixth of the season to open the scoring, then Juan Mata put the hosts up 2-0 near the half, tapping in a glancing header by Robin van Persie, though it was clear that Mata was offside. van Persie would get one for himself to seal the deal in the 2nd half. United are still looking at the title race through binoculars, but the distance is shortening. If Louis van Gaal can ever get a healthy defense in front of De Gea, who knows how high they may finish.

Manchester United appeared to be cruising but it took two brilliant David De Gea saves to preserve the win over Stoke City.

David De Gea's season stats probably don't look very good owing to the rotten defense in front of him for much of the early going. In recent weeks as the defense has started playing better, De Gea has put in some of the best goalkeeping performances in the league. He was great against Arsenal, he was mostly an onlooker against Hull City but he returned to being exceptional when needed against Stoke City. For much of the match it looked like his only action was going to be picking the Steven Nzonzi goal out of the net but in stoppage time he repelled excellent shots from Marc Wilson and Mame Biram Diouf to preserve the 2-1 victory.

David De Gea was where he needed to be for 90+ minutes against a consistent Arsenal attack and his fantasy output reflected that.

Even without a clean sheet, David De Gea had a huge night for Manchester United and fantasy owners in the 2-1 win over Arsenal on Saturday. His eight saves were the difference in the real match and represented a huge boon for fantasy managers even though he did eventually let in Olivier Giroud's stunning stoppage time strike. United's poor defensive form has held back De Gea's fantasy value for much of the season but he came through big in Week 12.

David De Gea was a huge presence for Manchester United as they beat Arsenal 2-1 at the Emirates despite Arsenal dominating play for most of the match.

Arsenal were on the attack for large stretches of the match and Manchester United did everything they could to hold on. In the end, David De Gea was there to stop a number of Arsenal chances that should have resulted in early goals. The Red Devils got lucky with a Kieran Gibbs own goal for the opener and then got a Wayne Rooney goal on the counter as Arsenal were pressing forward for the final 2-1 scoreline. United weren't very good but De Gea did enough to give them a chance and they took it to move into fourth place in the Premier League.

David De Gea's finger issue will apparently not keep him from starting for Manchester United against Arsenal in their Week 12 match.

The match between Manchester United and Arsenal will be critical for both faltering clubs. No one has staked a strong claim for the fourth Champions League spot and either club could parlay a win in this match plus the upcoming return of a number of first team players into some holiday momentum. Manchester United's chances of being that club were boosted with the news that David De Gea will be healthy enough to start despite injuring his finger over the international break while training with Spain.

Manchester United goalkeeper David de Gea will miss Saturdays’ Euro qualifying game against Belarus after injuring his finger in training on Friday.

The Spanish international is said to have suffered a recurrence of the finger injury which hampered his pre-season back in 2013 although the issue is not thought to be serious. The United stopper has been in inspired form over the last 18 months and is now pushing the ageing Iker Casillas for the nations’ number one jersey. David de Gea will remain with the Spanish squad while Vicente Del Bosque continues to assess the keeper although it remains unlikely he will be risked in Tuesdays’ friendly against Germany. The goalkeeper becomes the third Manchester United player to be injured during this international break along with Robin van Persie [hamstring] and Michael Carrick [groin].

If you are in a salary cap league and not locked into a goalkeeper for the season, expert Nik Argiropoulos recommends David De Gea as his top goalkeeper pick for Week 1 in the PL.

There seems to be a perfect storm brewing around Manchester United's players as salary cap league managers draw near to their transfer deadlines for Week 1 of the Premier League season. United are playing a depleted Swansea side at home and, if that weren't enough, it will be the much ballyhooed debut for World Cup darling Louis Van Gaal. De Gea is certainly one of the more expensive options available in most games but if you have the money it seems likely you'll get value for the investment. As an added bonus, United's early run of fixtures is pretty easy so you'll likely want to keep DDG as his price escalates.

Manchester United and Spain goalkeeper David de Gea has been ruled out of the World Cup with a hip injury.

There had been rumors of De Gea playing in Spain's next match after first choice goalkeeper Iker Casillas struggled against the Netherlands and conceded five goals. Those rumors can now rest as de Gea has been ruled out for the entire tournament. There is no prognosis on how long he'll be out for but we think there is a good chance that he will be back in time for the Premier League season.

Amid at least occasional rumors about his future at Old Trafford, Spaniard David De Gea has pledged his future to David Moyes' Manchester United.

After a breakout season and a Premier League title, David De Gea's name came into the frame as the big Spanish clubs may see some turnover in goal this summer. With Victor Valdes and Iker Casillas both making headlines in recent weeks there are likely to be openings at both Barcelona and Real Madrid soon if not this season. De Gea's name is certain to come up so United supporters will be happy to hear he wants to stay.
