Manchester United look like they have finally found Edwin van der Sar’s replacement and are lining up an offer for Rene Adler, according to the Mirror.

The Bayer Leverkusen stopper has ruled out a January move, though, as he wants to help the Bundesliga side into the Champions League as a parting gift.

Adler has revealed he wants to follow in the footsteps of his hero Peter Schmeichel, and he even had a clause inserted into his contract that would let Manchester United sign him for £15 million.

And Sir Alex Ferguson has now decided Adler would be the perfect replacement for the retiring Edwin van der Sar despite already bringing Anders Lindegaard to Old Trafford.

He said: “I have told the board of Leverkusen that I am not willing to discuss any kind of new contract until April. I just want to achieve a Champions League spot with my team here now.

“But everyone here knows that I have higher ambitions and everyone knows that Manchester United is my dream club. The board of the club are aware of the special clause in my contract.”

“As a young kid all my friends were interested in cartoons, MTV, and German television programmes, but I was only interested in one person: Peter Schmeichel, who was in goal for Manchester United,” he added.

“I thought he was fantastic and loved every minute he was on tv with United.

“My whole bedroom was full of Schmeichel posters and United things. I also had one or two other heroes in football, like Paul Gascoigne and Zidane. But nobody, in my eyes, was as impressive as Schmeichel.”
