Van Gaal had a gesture with the Catalan goalkeeper after the summer conflict
First good news for Valdés in a long time. Louis Van Gaal has decided to include the goalkeeper in the Premier League squad list. Having dismissed him for the Champions League, the Dutchman has now had a gesture, despite this summer he said he wanted him out for not following the philosophy of the club.
However, the former Barcelona goalkeeper will have a tough competition with three goalkeepers. De Gea, the favorite to be starter after the failed attempt to sign for Madrid, Romero, who arrived this summer but that has not convinced in the first matches of the Premier, and Johnstone, the keeper from the Academy who might not play many matches.
The decision is a little hope for Valdés, because at least he will feel useful and will be able to compete for a place in the trainings. Looking ahead to January, when the transfer market reopens, the Catalan goalkeeper must decide whether seeking a wayout or finish his contract with United until June 2016.
