Manchester United goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard is an alleged transfer target for Borussia Monchengladbach, as they continue their search for a replacement for Barcelona-bound Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, reports Danish newspaper BT.

The Bundesliga club are believed to have enquired about the Denmark international's availability, and are planning a bid to bring him to Germany at the end of the 2013/14 campaign.

Lindegaard has made just two appearances for Manchester United this season, and manager David Moyes is understood to be open to the possibility of the 29-year-old leaving Old Trafford.

However, before the Red Devils boss will sanction the sale, he will need to find a replacement stopper, to provide competition for current number one David De Gea.

De Gea himself has been linked with a move away from Manchester United, with Barcelona reportedly keen on the Spaniard before Christmas, as Tata Martino sought a successor for Camp Nou contract rebel, Victor Valdes.

But, the Catalan club have now decided to bring 21-year-old Germany international Ter Stegen to La Liga, bringing to an end their reported interest in Manchester United's first-choice goalkeeper.

Monchengladbach, meanwhile, are considering a number of different options, and should they fail in their pursuit of Lindegaard, could turn to FC Basel’s Yann Sommer, Hanover’s Ron-Robert Zieler, or Freiburg’s Oliver Baumann.
