Keeper Anders Lindegaard Hints At Manchester United Exit

Danish stopper frustrated with lack of first-team opportunities.

Check in to Sunderland vs Manchester United

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is considering leaving the club this summer according to The Mirror.

The Danish goalkeeper is growing frustrated with life at Old Trafford after finding his first team opportunities limited.

Lindegaard currently finds himself sitting on the bench at the club, with Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea now firmly established as first choice goalkeeper.

Lindegaard has appeared for United just once since December 1st and is ready to consider a move in his search for first team football.

United have also been linked with summer moves for a number of goalkeepers, raising the prospect of Lindegaard becoming the club’s third choice stopper.

The club are thought to be monitoring the likes of Stoke’s Asmir Begovic, Swansea’s Michel Vorm and Liverpool’s Pepe Reina, and should one of them arrive at the club come the summer, Lindegaard is almost certain to seek a move away.

Lindegaard is likely to have no shortage of potential suitors. The player performed admirably when given his chances in the United first team, at one point finding himself first choice ahead of De Gea.

The Dane has a good record on the pitch, having kept eleven clean sheets in 24 appearances for United but De Gea has firmly established himself as number one as he is currently enjoying a spell of 537 minutes without conceding a goal.
