Your list is very good, but your analysis, as is that of many, concerning Valdés, is wrong.
He makes saves that even Casillas and Buffón aren´t capable of.
You can´t discard him, because any coach in Europe will tell you they would take him in a heartbeat.
If he hasn´t been purged of his gaffes until now at Barcelona, yet still is the starter, what makes anyone think he´d be cured or non hot garbage at another major club?
He´s not a Catalán, so don´t think he´s got the position because of that. He is a culé, a FCB lifer, born in Cataluña, but not of Cataluña.
They, more than anybody, would love to replace him, if they could. However, they haven´t.
He is a great keeper. Yet, not the best.
