Anders Lindegaard's agent has confirmed the Manchester United goalkeeper is open to offers - and the Danish stopper is wanted by Benfica.
Reports in Portuguese newspaper A Bola claim that Lindegaard has emerged as a transfer target for the Liga Sagres giants, who won the title last season. Lindegaard, who is an international in his own right, currently plays second fiddle to Spanish keeper David De Gea at Old Trafford.
The Spaniard is the undisputed number one but Lindegaard is eager for first-team football. Last season Lindegaard made just one Premier League appearance for the Red Devils, and just three appearances total over the course of the campaign.
The same report has also been carried by the Daily Mail, who claim Lindegaard may even be fourth choice next season as Louis Van Gaal wants to go with youth to back-up De Gea.
Ben Amos and Sam Johnstone have impressed the new United boss, and he's willing to let Lindegaard leave the right price. And Lindegaard himself, through his agent, is open to leaving Old Trafford after four years at the club.
His agent, Michael Stensgaard, told Danish news agency Ritzau: "Anders would consider staying in England, but he is actually open to other opportunities too.
"The important thing is the package is right considering the family, the sport ambitions and of course the finances."
The 30-year-old keeper has two weeks to find a new club with the transfer deadline looming on September 2nd. Manchester United meanwhile, are expected to be busy working on incomings too.
Van Gaal has been linked with a number of big-money additions, as reports claim deals for one of Arturo Vidal or Angel Di Maria are not dead yet. Another centre-half could also be a late addition, while left-back cover is required.
