Chief Manchester United goalkeeping coach, Eric Steele, travelled to Germany over the weekend to watch goalkeeper Manuel Neuer in action for Schalke 04, as they succumbed to a 2-0 defeat away to Bayer Leverkusen. German International Neuer is one keeper on a list of many competing to replace Edwin Van Der Sar…

Goalie coach Eric Steele made a trip to the ‘BayArena’ in Leverkusen, Germany on Sunday to watch a Bundesliga clash between Bayer Leverkusen and Schalke 04. Manuel Neuer conceded two goals for the away side, but United scouts were said to be ‘content’ with the 24-year-old’s performance. He has long been touted as a possible replacement for Edwin Van Der Sar, who is retiring at the season’s end.

Playing in-goal for Bayer Leverkusen was Rene Adler, who is also touted to be on The Red’s ‘hot-list’. 

Denmark International Anders Lindegaard arrived from Aalesund, Norway for £3.4 Million earlier this year, but the 26-year-old may not be Van Der Sar’s no.1 successor as United search for more options between the posts. Sir Alex Ferguson and Steele travelled to Spain last September to watch Atletico Madrid’s David De Gea keep goal, and other United scouts have also been on the lookout for promising net minders. 
German manager Joachim Low called Manuel Neuer into his starting XI for the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa, due to an injury to Rene Adler and the tragic death of Robert Enke. Neuer’s virtuoso display against England helped Germany on their way to a 4-1 victory over Fabio Capello’s men on the world stage…

Prefer neuer to Adler, but would like Edwin to stay for another year. I also wouldn’t mind young schmeichel at the club as a back up.

Yeah, think the chances of VDS staying is slim now.
Like Neuer but is he good enough to fill the boots at Old Trafford?? Not too sure.
