Manchester City are preparing a move for Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes. Valdes comes off contract in June.

Marca says Valdés has received a formal offer from Monaco. However, a chance to join Manchester City could materialise in the coming weeks.

If Joe Hart's form doesn't improve, Pellegrini will insist on bringing in a world-class keeper and Valdés tops his wishlist.
