United ‘discuss’ Danish keeper

Aalesund chairman Bjarne Haagensen has revealed he is currently in

England with Lindegaard’s agent, Henrik Hoff, to talk with United.

Haagensen admitted that a deal to take the 26-year-old to Old

Trafford could be just hours away. “Henrik and I are in place in

Manchester,” Haagensen told TV2. Asked if a deal was close, he

responded: “It is. We are in the middle of it. I can’t say more

right now. We will send a press release in three or four hours.”

Lindegaard himself is returning to his club after keeping a clean

sheet against Czech Republic – but he would not comment on the

rumours of an imminent switch. “I have only heard the rumours about

United, I have absolutely no comment,” he told VG.
