Manchester United have reportedly told goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard that he can leave the club on a free transfer.
The player, who joined the club in 2010, has been on the periphery for the last few years and it looks highly unlikely that he will be part of the first-team going forward. This is despite the much anticipated exit of David de Gea on the cards. The exit of the Spaniard will leave new signing Sergio Romero as the first choice goalkeeper. Victor Valdes is also set to leave the club. These exits were expected to grant a new lease of life for Lindegaard.

Despite Manchester United getting beaten at the hands of Arsenal to be removed from the FA Cup contention, Louis Van Gaal is not in danger of being fired from his job.
The Dutchman enjoys the backing of the decision makers of the club and would probably be given a full wallet again to do the business in the summer.
Van Gaal was one of the biggest money spenders in the transfer market last year too.
The future of Anders Lindegaard at Old Trafford is not appearing to be very bright as the Danish goalkeeper managed to make a number of appearances during the time when Sir. Alex Ferguson was the coach of Manchester United but Lindegaard has not played a single minute in a competitive match under the tutelage of Louis van Gaal as the Dutch manager prefers using David de Gea.
Danish goalkeeper Andres Lindegaard could be set for a rare outing in the first-team at Manchester United after the Premier League club are having their fingers crossed about the fitness of first choice goalkeeper, David de Gea.
The Spaniard dislocated his finger during the recent international break and he is a major doubt for the weekend’s clash against Arsenal. Lindegaard, who often was preferred as the first choice during his early spell at the club, is yet to make a Premier League appearance this campaign. Last season, he featured in only three matches throughout the campaign.
A lonely goal from Peter Crouch gave Stoke City their first victory of the season as Stoke City received Newcastle United at the Britannia Stadium and Crouch’s goal secured all 3 points for his team. This defeat however, puts on more pressure to Alan Pardew as his future is at risk after sustaining yet another loss in the Premier League.
Newcastle United have not won a single match in the English League and the owner of the club, Mike Ashley could be thinking about sacking Alan Pardew from his managerial role in the team.
After looking closer to securing a first-team place at Manchester United, it looks as if Danish goalkeeper Andres Lindegaard is set for a move away from the club. Lindegaard emerged as a surprise candidate for the first time spot at United. This was largely down to the poor form of David de Gea at the start of his United career. After arriving to Old Trafford for £ 18 million, the former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper struggled to settle in the Premier League. Lindegaard, however, proved a stable goalkeeper in the matches in which Sir Alex Ferguson depended upon him.

Thereafter, the speculations started about Anton’s possible exit from Turkey and recently, the news came through that he agreed terms with Police United which plays in the top tier of Thai Football.
