Anders Lindegaard has reportedly been granted a free transfer from Manchester United, according to Ekstra Bladet.
Their report, via Google Translate :
It has been an adventure in more than one way for a Danish goalkeeper to spend five years in one of the world’s biggest clubs.
On the sporting front, however, it lagged for Anders Lindegaard Manchester United, who reached only get good session at the star-studded United team.
Over the past six years, he has even been as low as the third goalkeeper because the club bought former Barcelona goalkeeper Victor Valdes.
But now everything points toward that Anders Lindegaard is past Manchester United. It is even in spite of talk about extension earlier in the summer as well as combat training at the club’s US tour.
According to Ekstra Bladet English press sources had Anders Lindegaard and United manager Louis van Gaal a meeting on the trip to the US, where the future was only agenda.
Lindegaard has in a few months insisted that either should United extend with him, or he would proceed and the parties agreed that their ways parted.
British Guardian thinks to know that even if Madrid manages to get first goalkeeper David de Gea, then retrieved a replacement for him.
Manchester United have already secured the Argentine goalkeeper Sergio Romero in the Sampdoria, and it means that right now the whole five keepers in the first team squad.
It needs to be slimmed down, and therefore the United rid of Victor Valdes and Lindegaard. It is already close to hiring young Sam Johnstone out to Preston.
In the optimal world, Manchester United David de Gea as first, Romero as a reserve and a young goalkeeper as the third choice. But they sell the Gea looks on a new goalkeeper, who could possibly be Ajax-keeper Jasper Cillesen.
According to the British Independent, Louis van Gaal gave the green light to get rid de Gea as long as he can get Cillesen in. The charismatic Dutch manager believes that the constant talk about the Gea transfer affects the squad, and he will rather have the Spanish national team goalkeeper out.
Manchester United’s management is afraid to come to seem weak against a competitor on the big European stage if Real Madrid once again get their way in a big transfer, as it did with Gareth Bale.
While the game on de Gea running full blast, then Anders Lindegaard consider the possibilities that he again will play at the highest level every weekend.
Everything indicates that 31-year-old Lindegaard gets to slip on a free transfer. But you can forget about seeing him return in the Nordic region, where he has played.
Lindegaard still have the courage to play in a major European league, and it could be either Spain or France.
It has not been possible to get a comment from either Lindegaard or his agent Michael Stensgaard.
