Manchester United goalkeeper to be sold this summer following Louis van Gaal talks

With David De Gea, Sergio Romero, Victor Valdes and Anders Lindegaard fighting for a positing at Manchester United, it seems likely that Louis van Gaal is looking to offload a goalkeeper this summer.

According to Danish daily Ekstra Bladet, Lindegaard looks poised to be the first stopper to head out of the Old Trafford exit door.

Ekstra Bladet state that the Denmark international held a meeting with boss van Gaal in the States during the club’s pre-season tour, and the former Netherlands manager informed him that he is surplus to requirements with the Red Devils, and should search for a new team.

Despite making the move to Manchester five years ago, in 2010, Lindegaard has made just 19 starts in the Premier League – having sadly failed to challenge for the No.1 position.

With the futures of De Gea, Valdes and now Lindegaard uncertain, United are running the risk of being left with only summer arrival Romero to lead in between the posts at the Theatre of Dreams.

De Gea continues to be linked to Real Madrid ahead of the new season, and van Gaal himself has admitted that the situation is not ‘favourable’ – suggesting that the 24-year-old could make a late move to the Santiago Bernabeu:

“We have a situation that is not favourable for David De Gea but neither for us and neither for the club [Real Madrid] that maybe he wants to go [to],” as quoted by The Guardian.

Valdes, meanwhile, looks to be available in the market, after van Gaal sensationally claimed that the former Barcelona stopper does not meet his ‘philosophy’ following his refusal to play for the reserves [via Goal].
