Manchester United consider shock move for Arsenal flop

Premier League champions Manchester United have made an unexpected enquiry for Sunderland goalkeeper Vito Mannone, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.

Mannone, who spent eight years with Arsenal before joining the Black Cats last summer, is reportedly wanted by David Moyes as a back-up option for David de Gea.

United's current second-choice goalkeeper, Anders Lindegaard, has been linked with a move to Bundesliga outfit Borussia Mönchengladbach as a replacement for Marc-Andre ter Stegen, who it's believed will replace Victor Valdes at Barcelona this summer.

And, subsequently, Moyes is reportedly keen to bring Mannone to Old Trafford as Lindegaard's successor.

The United boss sent scouts to watch the 25-year-old Italian in action against Fulham last weekend.

Sunderland have reportedly told United that Mannone is not for sale - but it's believed that a deal could still be on the cards if the Red Devils submit a formal bid for the former Italy Under-21 international.
