Valdes opens door to Premier League move

Barcelona keeper Victor Valdes has admitted that playing in the Premier League would be a ‘very good option for him’ with the player ready to leave the Catalan giants, according to Sky Sports.

The 32 year old shot stopper will seemingly out an end to his glittering career at the Nou Camp with his contract up in the summer, with Barcelona shaping up a replacement in the form of Borussia Monchengladbach’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen.

While Monaco have been strongly linked with the Spaniard, the player is looking to keep his options open as Arsenal, Manchester City and Liverpool all said to be monitoring the situation - with England looking a clear possibility.

Valdes said: “I've always identified with your football, the way the supporters live the game and the respect they show they players," he told the Daily Mail.

"It is one of the biggest leagues in the world, with the best clubs in the world and, without doubt, it's a very good option for me.”

For now, Valdes will line up for Barcelona and potential suitors Manchester City in the last 16 Champions League tie, who travel to the Nou Camp attempting to overcome a two goal deficit after losing 2-0 at the Etihad in the first leg.

And Valdes feels the Spanish giants have given themselves a comfortable chance of progressing, but is wary of the likes of former team mate Yaya Toure.

“Two-nil is a good result, but it is not definitive and even more so with the power that they (City) have," he added.
