Jeepers Keepers!

Rumours relating to a goalkeeping switch at Old Trafford continue to fill column inches.

This morning the tabloid press is running with the insinuation that an 'older` keeper could be between the posts at Old Trafford next season.

Amazingly it seems that Victor Valdes (31), who has declared that he is leaving the Nou Camp, could be the one Sir Alex Ferguson turns to with our current young Spaniard, David de Gea (22), moving to the Nou Camp.

On paper, it all looks rather feasible until you delve a little deeper and notice that Pepe Reina, over at Anfield has also decreed, via his father, that he`d be absolutely delighted to move to Barcelona.

Does anyone else think this particular rumour has plenty of more mileage in it?

Valdes?! God I hope not! Statistically he's one of the best keepers in the world but factually he's a very poor keeper. His decision to leave Barca will ruin his career as he will be shown up as the average keeper he is. The only reason he has any merit now is due to barcas ball retention ability strangling the oppositions forwards from any supply and as such he rarely gets a shot at him and even then not necessarily on target. That said of the shots that are on target more go in than not, his concentration levels are awful and has some serious moments of madness, almunia-like.
