When it comes to goalkeeping, Peter Schmeichel knows his stuff.
Possibly United’s best goalkeeper ever and a clear shout for one of all the greatest of all time replacing a man like him took United years and after 6 we finally did so in Edwin van der Sar. Now Edwin has hit crazy heights between the sticks providing a stability we sorely lacked after Schmeichel had left.
Now Edwin is coming to the end of his career a number of keepers are being sounded out and Schmeichel himself has offered his two cents stating we should go after Liverpool’s keeper Pepe Reina:
“You can look at talent, you can look at young, good players – you don’t want that. You want someone that can go in straight away and give performances in 80% of the games that the No. 1 choice goalkeeper will play for Manchester United… The rumours are very, very strong around Old Trafford with this. A lot of goalkeepers are mentioned, but Reina seems to be the one that fits in the team and if he ever was to leave Liverpool, which again there is a big, big rumour he will, Manchester United would be a great club for him to come to.
Very big claims from Schmeichel but would Reina really cross the divide? He has just signed a 6 year contract at Anfield so is a departure on the cards especially to Old Trafford?
