Lindegaard Close To Manchester United Move, De Gea Situation Still Unclear

Anders Lindegaard, the 26-year-old Danish international is close to a move to Manchester United as the club attempts to find the ideal successor to the legendary Dutch goalkeeper Edwin Van der Sar... Sources close to the club say that Lindegaard, who plays for the Denmark national squad & Norwegian club Aalesunds, is expected to join United in the January transfer window for a fee close to €3.5 million after Aalesunds's club executives were spotted outside Old Trafford...

Lindegaard has made more than 100 appearances for his club, and has astonishingly made a lot of progress in the past 2-3 years which also saw him being called-up to the Denmark national squad... Lindegaard played a significant role in his club finishing 4th in the league last season, which also saw Aalesunds win the Norwegian Cup for the first time...

Meanwhile, leading British daily 'The Times' reported that negotiations for the brilliant U-21 Spain & Atletico Madrid stopper David De Gea had reached an advanced stage & the question remaining to be answered was whether De Gea would join United in January or next summer... However, Atletico Madrid club president Enrique Cerezo denied such rumours & said that he expected De Gea to stay at the club for 'a long time'...

After Sir Alex recently stated in the press that he had shut the door on new signings in January, it would be interesting to see if United does sign any player... With Van der Sar set to retire next summer & Kuszczak seeking greener pastures, it seems imminent that one of Lindegaard & De Gea will most probably arrive at Old Trafford this January...
