Newly promoted side Middlesbrough have completed the signing of three-time Champions League winner Victor Valdes.
The former Barcelona man has joined Boro on a two-year deal, after his 18-month spell with United came to an end in June.
Manager Aitor Karanka told Middlesbrough’s official website : “You can’t imagine how delighted I am because it’s not usual to bring players like him to recently promoted teams.
“I’m really pleased because he is really committed. All the the conversations we’ve had he knows why he is here and he is coming to add to what we have.
“He knows how strong this group is. It’s a privilege for us to be able to bring a player like this to the club.”
The World Cup winner, who spent some time on loan with Belgian outfit Standard Liege last season, is Middlesbrough’s fifth signing this summer.
