United - Van der Sar`s Successor?

Edwin van der Sar remains one of the top keepers in the Premier League.

Unfortunately, it has to be recognized that the Dutch international cannot go on forever and will, one day, have to be replaced.

With his natural successor, Ben Foster, having been sold to Birmingham City, it`ll be interesting to see who, if anyone, Sir Alex Ferguson brings in on either a short or long term basis.

On a long term basis the latest rumour to hit our desks suggests that Sir Alex has targeted the German international keeper, Manuel Neuer.

Neuer, currently on the books of Schalke, would command a sizeable fee but, to be honest, is the class of keeper we should be looking at to eventually replace our reliable Dutchman!

Sad that all the Spanish keepers are at clubs we can never buy from. Those three, Cech, VDS, Cesar and Buffon would be the most ocnsistent. Neuer, Lloris and Akinfeev are good but to cope with the demands of a club of this magnitude..... Unless we are promoting Kuszack.

The Goalkeeper position is one which i think you can never be to cautious with if it requires splashing a considerable amount of money to keep our amazing defensive record im all for it.

neur would be the easiest to get out of the three mentioned by tf7 , but i don't think he is better than the above .

Neuer would do for me, young, decent and solid!
