Can They Score takes a look at the current goalkeeping situation at Manchester United and how the club will move forward after Edwin Van Der Sar has retired.
Replacing Edwin Van Der Sar directly is near impossible- he is quite possibly the world's best keeper on current form. He is quite simply majestic between the posts! Our current batch of replacements, despite being quality stoppers, don't presence the presence or footwork to replace him. Keepers such as De Gea and Neuer possess these qualities and would be great, but expensive, additions!
I'd like to see us sign Neuer but he seems intent on staying in Germany and is tipped for a move to Bayern Munich. De Gea would be my second choice after him and I think it's important not to repeat the mistakes made after Schmeichel left.
