Former Tottenham manager Christian Gross has backed Manchester United's pursuit of Schalke goalkeeper Manuel Neuer.

Gross saw plenty of Neuer last season when in charge of Stuttgart.

He told talkSPORT: "He's a fantastic goalkeeper.

"He will be a fantastic choice for Manchester United. He's already got a lot of experience, he's a good footballer, he's brave, he's good on the ball. He's a really excellent goalkeeper."
