    Victor Valdes would be the "perfect" replacement for David De Gea should the Spaniard leave Manchester United for Real Madrid, says ex-Red Devils keeper Raimond van der Gouw.

    "With what he knows about football and the way he is playing, he is perfect for United. He can play for another three or four years in a top team. Van der Sar played and did a great job."
