Man United interested in Neuer

August 14, 2009


According to reports from newspapers, Man United are interested in signing 23-year old German keeper, Manuel Neuer, from Schalke. A fee of around £5M is being suggested, though no official bid has been made from officials at United.

Bayern Munich are also stated to be interested in signing him. This young keeper came through Schalke’s ranks during 2006-2007 season, and is their no.1 keeper.

May be Fergie wants to get him to replace the ageing Van Der Sar, who is playing his last season, and also the injury-proned Foster, who still has to give his best, which leaves Kuszckak the only one to turn to when these two are out.

    I hope we get Rene Adler instead. I think he is more sound than Neuer, he’s cool as ice.

      Neuer is said to be the next “Peter Schmeichel”, and if United do buy him I hope he doesnt do a Taibi on us :P
      Me 2 think Adler is more proper to play at OT

      thats it. rene adler. i knew there was another highly rated young keeper from the bundesliga, have to say heard very little of this manuel neuer character.

      i still think foster should get a run of games though despite the charity shield fiasco, build his confidence up. and if that backfires, then we can throw stones at him.

        Yeah, Adler is quality I think. I saw him a few times already for the national team and saw him last month here in Leipzig when Leverkusen did a preseason match here. Anyways, he controlled crosses well, bullied his defenders and seem to be organized enough.

    Im happy for this season to stick with the three we got but im sure Fergie will add next summer..He will probably try and do business swiftly though, considering that World Cup year always inflates players prices..Make one good save in South Africa, and a goalkeepers valiue will shoot up!
