Sir Alex looks to talented Serie A keeper as a long term keeping solution.
Manchester United are looking for a goalkeeper after Van der Sar. Despite Ferguson’s comments, it seems difficult that Ben Foster will replace the Dutch man, due to his recent poor performance.
The English club follow the German under 21 Manuel Neuer of Schalke and Rui Patricio of Sporting Lisbon.
The Red Devils would be prepared to offer Inter 20 million pounds for Julio Cesar.
Given the very real fear that Edwin Van der Sar may call it quits either at the end of the season or even before, and the fact that Ben Foster has not exactly covered himself in glory with his displays and the added factor of Sir Alex Ferguson stating that he wouldn’t be surprised if Thomas Kuszczak requested to leave in order to secure first team football, the move for a new keeper has never been so important.
A number of names have been mentioned in this regard but Julio Cesar is one of the best around at the moment and the 30 year old vastly experienced Brazilian keeper could be a very good, if pricey, signing.
Sir Alex will want to act soon in order to make sure that he has a good back up for when our veteran Dutchman hangs up his gloves so he may try to bring someone in when the transfer window reopens in January unless of course by that time Ben Foster has impressed enough to make people forget his all too common failings between the sticks.
