Big Bundesliga keeper could be on his way to Old Trafford.
Manchester United are reportedly lining up a bid to bring German international keeper Manuel Neuer to Old Trafford this summer. Sir Alex Ferguson is apparently very keen on snapping up the Schalke custodian as he looks for a long term successor to veteran Edwin Van der Sar.
24 year old Neuer has had a marvelous Bundesliga season helping Schalke to within 90 minutes of their first domestic title in over 50 years and is fighting to be Joachim Low’s number one choice for the forthcoming World Cup.
Having spent the last four seasons as the regular number one at Veltins Arena it is believed that the towering keeper is ready to leave Germany for a new challenge and would surely jump at the chance of a move to Manchester United who have already offloaded Ben Foster and appear to be unconvinced of back up Tomasz Kuszczak’s ability to step into Van der Sar’s shoes.
