TRANSFER TALK: United Eye Shay Given

By on May 1, 2011

As veteran star Edwin Van Der Sar is due to retire when the season comes to an end, Manchester United have just started to monitor Manchester City’s Shay Given.

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has attempted to tie-up previous deals for both Schalke custodian Manuel Neuer and Liverpool’s experienced goalkeeper Pepe Reina and has also apparently failed to persuade Atletico Madrid youngster David De Gea to leave Spain for a bigger challenge at the prestigious Barclays Premier League club.

Shay Given, 35 this year, has pretty much became a benchwarmer for Roberto Mancini’s side throughout the campaign after failing to outclass Joe Hart for a spot in the starting 11.

The former Newcastle stopper has not even featured a single minute of Barclays Premier League action so far and has previously been strongly linked with moves to clubs like Arsenal and Fulham. But its reported that United may be now the latest club to line up a bid for the experienced stopper.
