United Chiefs Attempt To Thrash Out Deal For £12m Keeper

By on May 7, 2011

The Sun reports that United chiefs will fly to Lisbon this weekend in order to finalise a deal for Rui Patricio. United are desperate to land a replacement keeper for the retiring Edwin van der Sar and have been linked with a variety of keepers across Europe.

But with a deal for their 1st choice keeper Atletico’s David De Gea stumbling, United have turned their attention to Sporting Lisbon No1, Patricio.

The 23-year old has made 167 appearance for his club and has a £12million valuation, which is significantly more than what United are prepared to pay, who have already had a £7milllion bid rejected.

    Patricio may be The Sun’s idea of United’s choice but that is not the view of other newspapers who suggest Stekelenburg is the man they want.
    I know nothing of Patricio but Sir Alex will have done his homework on ALL keepers and if he wants one of them, no doubt he will get him BUT he will not be getting Neuer and after the other nights performance, thank God for that!
