According to

reports today

, Manchester United are facing a battle to keep their goalkeeper Victor Valdes, with strong interest coming from Newcastle United.

Magpies stopper Tim Krul was ruled out until next Summer with a ruptured cruciate ligament picked up during international duty this week, and Steve McClaren knows he must plug the hole at the back if he is to mount a serious survival attempt this season. 

Valdes is currently surplus to requirements at Man Utd, finding himself left out of Van Gaal's Champions League squad, but despite this the United manager is rumoured to be reluctant to sell to another Premier League club.
