Man Utd ready to let TWO goalkeepers leave in this transfer window

Manchester United are on the verge of sealing a deal for ex-Barcelona man Victor Valdes, so there is obviously going to be some room for manoeuvre regarding outgoing shot-stoppers. According to The Independent, Louis van Gaal is ready to let two keepers go in this transfer window.

Although David de Gea’s future is up in the air somewhat, many reports suggest that he’ll remain at Old Trafford with Valdes playing backup to the 24-year old.

That leaves Anders Lindegaard and Ben Amos both struggling for game time, and meaning that a move away is pretty much inevitable.

Lindegaard cost the club a mere £3million in 2010, and has made 29 appearances in his five seasons at the club. He hasn’t featured once in a competitive game under Louis van Gaal though, meaning his days are certainly numbered.

Ben Amos is probably on his way out this month too, and its a shame really because big things were once expected of the Macclesfield-born goalkeeper. Amos has made seven appearances for United, including a league game against Stoke a couple of seasons ago. Since then he hasn’t really kicked on, and after unimpressive loan spells, he is preparing to leave the Theatre of Dreams.

Is this the right decision? Leave your thoughts in the comment box below.
