United to consider stopper sale - reports

Published Add your comment

Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak is a reported summer transfer target for Bayer Leverkusen according to skysports.com.

The 29-year-old Polish international stopper has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, following the arrival of David de Gea from Atletico Madrid.

Sir Alex Ferguson is thought to have made the decision that Kuszczak was not the man to fill the void left by the recently retired Edwin Van der Sar after a shaky performance between the sticks for the Red Devils away to Blackburn Rovers on the penultimate day of last season.

Despite the unconvincing outing in the 1-1 draw, Manchester United secured their record 19th title - but it became immediately apparent to Ferguson and Co. that United would need to recruit a new stopper in the summer before the start of 2011/12.


 

Having fallen further down the Old Trafford pecking order, Kuszczak has expressed his desire to leave and has been reportedly valued by Manchester United at £3.5million.

Recent speculation has linked Kuszczak with a move back to his former club West Brom, with Baggies boss Roy Hodgson keen to bring him to the Hawthorns as a replacement for Bursaspor-bound Scott Carson.
