Valdes (knee) is unlikely to start for Manchester United due to David de Gea's finger injury, despite training with the club, due to his lack of fitness, reports the Daily Mail.

Valdes is expected to join United in the near future, but remains short of match fitness after recovering from a serious knee injury in March. Manchester United could sign him if his fitness is deemed sufficient.

Valdes, who is continuing to recover from a torn ACL suffered last March, has begun rehabbing and lightly training with Manchester United.

Valdes was heavily linked to Liverpool in the last few weeks, but training with Manchester United could surely scupper any move to Anfield. He's still quite a way away from returning to full fitness, so there isn't any pressure on incumbent keeper David De Gea yet.

Valdes will miss the rest of the La Liga season and the World Cup after tearing his ACL in Wednesay's win over Celta Vigo, reports.

The 32-year-old keeper has already announced that he will not return to Barcelona next season, as his contract expires with the club this summer. It is unclear where his next stop is, but any team that picks him up will likely only have him for a fraction of next season.

Valdes (calf) has been cleared by Barcelona's medical staff and could play Sunday against Elche, reports.

Jose Manuel Pinto has started in Valdes' place while he's been out. The No. 1 keeper has been out since November, but will likely return to the starting XI this weekend.

Valdes is hoping to return to the pitch in early January following a calf injury suffered in mid-November, the Associated Press reports.

It sounds like the club is hoping Valdes can be fit for its match against Elche on January 5. The 31-year old has publicly said he will leave Barcelona after this season, so any playing time he gets this year will be as a tryout for potential suitors, of which he'll likely have many.

Valdes suffered a calf injury during Tuesday's international friendly against South Africa and an MRI on Wednesday confirmed he has a torn muscle which will sideline him for at least six weeks, according to Sky Sports.

Valdes, who has been Barcelona's top keeper this year, announced his intentions to leave the club following this season. Jose Manuel Pinto is expected to start in his place while he recovers.
