Carlo Cudicini has emerged as a target for Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.Carlo Cudicini has emerged as a target for Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson.
The Chelsea keeper has just returned from injury following three weeks out with an elbow problem.
However, the Italian shot-stopper will find it tough to get a place in the side with the form of Czech Republic star Petr Cech.
Jose Mourinho favours Cech as his number one and Cudicini finds himself as second choice at Stamford Bridge.
Ferguson has seen Tim Howard's form dip alarming recently and was forced to field Roy Carroll against Liverpool on Monday.
Cudicini was widely regarded as one of the best in The Premiership last season and he has already said that he will not be happy warming the bench.
Ferguson will no doubt give Howard another chance but should he continue to drop the clangers he has of late, he could suffer the same fate as Fabien Barthez.
No deal could be done until the January transfer window but should Cudicini still be second choice he could well welcome a move to Old Trafford should Ferguson still be in need of a proven Premiership keeper.
