Manchester United, who are yet to receive confirmation from first-choice goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar, regarding his decision to continue playing or retire at the end of the season, are struggling to find a reliable long-term replacement. Both Ben Foster and Tomas Kuszczack have failed to fully convince manager Sir Alex Ferguson so far in the campaign, prompting many to believe the 67-year-old Scot will bring in a new goalkeeper in January.

One of United’s reported targets, Fiorentina keeper Sebastien Frey, has been heavily linked with a move to the Premier League champions, something his agent, Giovanni Branchini, has since played down. “I don’t know about Manchester United, " Branchini, told tuttomercatoweb.com. "We have not been contacted."

Ferguson has also come out to deny he his in the market for possible arrivals, saying to Key 103, “That has not come onto the agenda. We are not so bad and we are not looking at signing players.”
