Bryan Robson says Tomasz Kuszczak will only join Man Utd if the right bid comes in.
West Brom boss Bryan Robson has told Sky Sports News that Manchester United are yet to make a firm offer for Tomasz Kuszczak, although the Polish keeper may be allowed to leave The Hawthorns if an acceptable bid is forthcoming.
The Baggies boss has already confirmed that former manager Sir Alex Ferguson has enquired about the Polish international, with media reports stating a bid of £2 million is in the offing.
United are in the hunt for a backup keeper to Edwin van der Sar after loaning Tim Howard to Everton, and Kuszczak proved his Premiership class last season with a number of impressive performances - including the save of the season he produced to deny Jason Roberts in a game against Wigan in January.
Whilst Ferguson has registered his interest in the 24-year-old, the Scot has not yet entered a bid, and Robson says Kuszczak will only be leaving The Baggies if the deal suits the Championship side.
"He is an interest [for Manchester United] but that's as far as it's gone," Robson told Sky Sports News.
"As far as people saying there's been offers there that's not the case.
"It's a matter of being told Man Utd do have an interest in the player but that's up to Man Utd.
"We've got to balance it up, look at whether it's a good move for the club, whether the package is right and whether Tomasz wants to go to Man Utd.
"It can only be decided if Man Utd put in an offer that is acceptable to us."
