Manchester United 'keeper has 'absolutely no plans' to leave

Published Add your comment

Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard has no intention of pursuing a transfer away from Old Trafford and remains committed to the Premier League champions, according to his agent Michael Stensgaard.

The Denmark international has been linked with a departure from the club for a number of months given that David de Gea is the club's undoubted first-choice shot-stopper, with Borussia Monchengladbach the latest side to be credited with interest.

Gladbach will be after another 'keeper in the summer after Marc-Andre ter Stegen refused to sign a new contract - paving the way for a move to Barcelona - and Lindegaard is reported to be a target for the Bundesliga club.

The supposed interest from Gladbach, however, has not resulted in Lindegaard abandoning his desire to remain with Manchester United and, says Stensgaard, no deal will take place unless David Moyes decides to sell.

"Anders has absolutely no plans to go, and the club has no plans to sell him. We have a nice dialogue with Manchester United, and Anders still has the faith of the club," he told, as translated by Sport Witness.

"Then we'll see what the perspective is for the summer, and there are other clubs showing interest, but right now nothing happens.

"It is so easy for others to say that Anders Lindegaard should change clubs when these kinds of rumours arise, but you must remember that he is under contract at Manchester United, and the club have to both receive an offer and accept it before it will even be considered, and that it does not appear in this transfer window."

The 29-year-old joined Manchester United from Aalesund in the summer of 2010 and has made 27 first-team appearances for the club.
