wtf. i thought anders lindegaard was a good keeper.

he just needed match time. which is something de gea got and he didnt. pity they not giving lindegaard the same chance.

whichever club buys this guy is going to be lucky. thats for sure.

Lindegaard is a solid keeper but backup material for a club like United, nothing more. Not only that he is soon to be 29 and been at United a few seasons now. If he hasn't broken into the first team at United by the time he is 29 and a few seasons in then surely he never will and won't suddenly improve either.

Lindegaard himself would probably prefer to be first choice at a smaller club elsewhere.

The difference is De Gea has got ages to improve at just 22 and will surely only get better as well. If Lindegaard can't oust De Gea now then how will he in another year or two if De Gea keeps proving himself to be the future of the position?

Begovic would give better competition for De Gea.

i doubt united will get him.

There's plenty of clubs who will offer him first team football instead of competing for game time with another keeper.
