Lindegaard: United target
Manchester United appear to have opened talks with Aalesund over Danish international goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard.
Aalesund chairman Bjarne Haagensen has revealed that he is currently in England with Lindegaard's agent Henrik Hoff, to talk with United.
Haagensen admitted that a deal to take Lindegaard 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 Norwegian 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," the 26-year-old told VG.
