Manchester United are set to enter into a tug of war with Arsenal over German goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, with both top flight sides keen to secure the star’s signature, according to reports.
The Daily Mail has claimed that Neuer was interested accepting a £22 million deal to replace Manchester United’s retiring keeper Edwin Van der Sar, however with Arsene Wenger facing a goalkeeping injury crisis, the Arsenal manager is keen to get the Schalke keeper on board.
While Wojciech Szczesny has shone in his recent starts for Arsenal, Wenger reportedly wants to have another star on his keeping list, in case another group of unlucky injuries occur.
While speculation was rife that Wenger was chasing Neuer in the last summer transfer period, he decided against it because he couldn't afford the £20 million Schalke demanded for the 24 year old.
But now the Daily Mail is reporting that Wenger believes he can lower the price tag for Neuer and bring the keeper to Arsenal for a bargain.
