Manchester United are looking to offload Anders Lindegaard this January, with Victor Valdes replacing him as second choice at Old Trafford…
The arrival of Victor Valdes at Manchester United seems to have signaled the end for long term second choice shot-stopper Anders Lindegaard, according to Goal.
Lindegaard was bought by Sir Alex Ferguson for £3.5m in 2010, and has struggled for game time ever since.
The Danish goalkeeper has made just 19 Premier League appearances for Manchester United, and it is a mystery why he hasn’t moved on before now.
With Valdes’ introduction, Lindegaard is likely to see his pitch time limited even further; and having failed to make a singly senior appearance so far this season, that would be some feat.
The 30-year-old’s current deal is set to expire in 2016, and Louis van Gaal is keen to recoup some of the £3.5m originally spent on the player.
Valdes himself is likely to spend much of his time on the bench, with current No.1 David de Gea in fantastic form. The young Spaniard is being courted by Real Madrid however, and could soon seal a move away from Old Trafford.
