10 Players You Completely Forgot Played For Manchester United

10. Victor Valdes

Signed back in 2015 following a spell of rehabilitation with the Red Devils, Valdes was expected to prove ample cover and if anything, challenge David De Gea for the number one spot.

A player who had won everything with Barcelona previoulsy, it never got going for Valdes at United, as he was restricted to just two appearances in an ill-fated 12 month spell with the club.

A loan spell with Standard Liege over in Belgium followed, before the Spanish international was shipped out to Middlesbrough on a permanent deal for the 2015/16 season.

It's a shame really that someone of Valdes' stature never quite got the recognition he deserved for taking the plunge and moving to England, and despite it only happening four years ago, he's already a forgotten man.

Valdes is now safely back home with Barcelona where he serves as a coach in the youth set up for the La Liga giants.
