Manchester United Line Up New Signing In Intriguing Swap Deal

Manchester United could be set to bring in a new reserve goalkeeper when the transfer window reopens in January, report the Mirror, with the Red Devils considering a swap deal involving current incumbent Anders Lindegaard and highly rated young Molde goalkeeper Orjan Nyland.

Nyland is one of the brightest prospects in Norwegian football, save of course for Martin Odegaard, and the 24 year-old stopper is expected to be one of the next export from the Tippeligaen to make it in one of Europe’s major leagues – although Old Trafford would represent a huge step up for the agile shot stopper.

Lindegaard, who was also brought to Old Trafford from Scandinavia as a highly rated young ‘keeper, has stagnated somewhat in the last couple of seasons having been entirely unable to dislodge first choice David de Gea from the team and a move would probably benefit all parties.

Whether Molde, despite being one of the bigger clubs in Norway, are able to afford the wages of Lindegaard remains to be seen, however, but the noise is starting to get louder and it would seem as though Louis van Gaal is determined to secure a new reserve ‘keeper.
