Ben Amos could leave Manchester United this summer

Manchester United goalkeeper Ben Amos could depart Old Trafford this summer, according to The Manchester Evening News

The report has suggested that Amos could leave the Theatre of Dreams because he's been unable to overtake David de Gea and Anders Lindegaard as United's first choice 'keepers. It remains to be seen as to whether new Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal looks to ship him out on loan or get rid of him on a permanent basis. 


At 24-years-old, Amos is in need of finding first-team football in the near future. He can no longer be regarded as a youngster and may look to settle down after a number of loan switches. 

Amos has spent time at the likes of Hull City and Carlisle in recent time, however it remains uncertain as to where he will play his football for the long-term. He may look to try and impress Van Gaal at the Theatre of Dreams in pre-season, but it now appears unlikely that he will remain at the club. 

De Gea and Lindegaard

It certainly hasn't proved easy for Amos to stake a claim as Manchester United's No.1 - or even No.2 - keeper in recent time. Spanish international David de Gea has cemented his place as the club's main shot-stopper.

The 'keeper was arguably United's standout player in 2013/14, in what proved to be a disastrous season for the club. Lindegaard, meanwhile, has also struggled for opportunities of late, but will be hoping to challenge the Spaniard for a first-team place under the new regime.

Alex Buttner

If Amos is shipped out by the new Manchester United boss, then he would follow full-back Alex Buttner out of the Old Trafford exit door. The defender left United for Dinamo Moscow yesterday after struggling for opportunities last term.

Manchester United are expected to find a replacement for Buttner, however, with Southampton starlet Luke Shaw having been linked with a move to the club for some time now.

Van Gaal 

Dutch coach Van Gaal certainly looks set to make changes at the club ahead of the 2014/15 campaign. The new Red Devils boss will be desperate to help United return to the Champions League at the first time of asking.

The Red Devils' seventh placed finish under David Moyes last term certainly can't be repeated, with this summer set to be a crucial one for the new regime.
