Anzhi preparing to make Valdes the highest paid goalkeeper in the world

Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala has revealed it is willing to break the bank in order to secure the services of Victor Valdes next season.

Valdes, who is set to leave Barcelona in the summer, has been courted by a host of top European sides with Arsenal and Bayern Munich the current favourites to sign the 31-year-old.

However, Anzhi have declared an interest in the Barca stopper and want to make him the world's highest-paid keeper with the club prepared to pay Valdés €10m per season, an amount that could increase to €12m based on bonuses.

A move by the Russian club, currently managed by Guus Hiddink, would reportedly fend off interest from the likes of Arsenal who will not want to enter a bidding war with one of the world's richest clubs.

If Valdes was to move to Anzhi, he would link up with former Barcelona teammate and current Anzhi captain, Samuel Eto'o.
