Lindegaard is being considered by Sir Alex Ferguson to eventually step into Edwin Van der Sar ‘s shoes at Manchester United . 26-year-old Lindegaard is currently playing at top Norwegian side Aalesunds. He originally joined the Norwegian club on loan from Danish side Odense, but impressed so much that they signed him on a three-year deal earlier this year.
With Ben Foster having been sold to Birmingham City over the summer, there would appear to be room for an extra goalkeeper at Manchester United . Ferguson would apparently be willing to loan Lindegaard straight back to Aalesunds should he sign at Old Trafford.
According to the Daily Mail, Aalesunds director Henrik Hoff has confirmed Manchester United ’s interest in the goalkeeper. But, the newspaper also claims that sources close to Lindegaard have said that two other Premier League sides are interested in the stopper.
At 6ft 3in, Lindegaard is renowned for being a very commanding goalkeeper, good in the air.
