Manchester United’s first choice goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar is likely to retire from football at the end of the season according to Manchester United goalkeeper coach, Eric Steele.
Steele told Manchester Evening News: “I think Ed has made his mind up and said this is his last year.
“He is a good pro and a sensible and highly intelligent guy who will know when the time is right. I don’t think he will need myself or the manager to tell him that time has come. He will know.
“But if he gets to Christmas and he thinks it is right to go on and the manager thinks it is right we will make a decision.
“It is down to how he feels and performs. If he doesn’t perform the manager will make the decision. Edwin will as well.”
Manchester United have been linked with plenty of goalkeeper’s in the past two years from Carlos Kameni (Espanyol) to David de Gea (Atlético Madrid).
All the lights are now on Ajax’s goalkeeper, Maarten Stekelenburg who took Dutch No.1 from Van Der Sar when he retired after Euro 2008.
