United transfer target: “Who wouldn’t want to go to Manchester United”
Written by Football Talk.
Manchester United target Anders Lindegaard has expressed his desire to join the Red Devils, but fears his teams display in front of United’s reserve team coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last night may ruin his chances.
Solskjaer was at Fir Park to watch Lindegaard’s Aalesund lose 3-0 to Motherwell in their Europa League tie, with the Danish side conceding twice inside the first 15 minutes, and the 26 year-old goalkeeper admits that this display was hardly ideal when trying to impress the on-looking scouts.
“You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to calculate how important this game was for me,” Lindegaard told Sky Sports News.
“Playing in Great Britain, there’s probably a couple of clubs here watching and, when you’re down after 15 minutes 2-0 and the other team doesn’t have a decent shot on goal for the rest of the game, then this wasn’t a good game for me to show the world.”
Lindegaard has been linked with a move to Old Trafford recently and he has been named as a potential long-term successor to Edwin van der Sar. When asked about a move to the Premier League and specifically Manchester United, Lindegaard replied:
“When you play in Scandinavia it’s a big dream to go abroad for me, especially to the Premier League or to Great Britain.”
“Of course, who wouldn’t go to Manchester United”
