Polish keeper is the best Van der Sar replacement around.
One problem for Ferguson is that yesterday’s puzzling takeover of Portsmouth by a man rich enough to be able to buy a much better club than Portsmouth may complicate Ferguson’s cunning plan to sign David James in January. So now he’s plotting a move for either Celtic’s Artur Boruc or Newcastle’s Tum Krul, who’s also a target for Juventus. (Guardian)
For some time now I have been singing the praises of Celtic‘s Polish stopper as the best player around to take Edwin’s gloves when he hangs them up and this source seems to suggest that Boruc is uppermost in Sir Alex’s plans.
Any move for the Parkhead keeper will be expensive but then I firmly believe that a top notch goalie is worth splashing out on and the £14m, or thereabouts, needed to wrench him from Glasgow will be more than worth it.
There are few keepers in Europe with Artur’s dominance and he is the type of player who breeds confidence in his back four and after four years in Scotland he may well be ready to take that step up to Old Trafford.
