Manchester United are ready to offer £4 million for Aalesunds goalkeeper Anders Lindegaard.

The Daily Star says United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a big admirer of the Aalesunds stopper and reckons he can become the long-term successor to Edwin van der Sar.

United have been keeping close tabs on the 26-year-old for six months.

Goalkeeping coach Eric Steele jetted to Norway on Sunday night to watch Lindegaard in action.

Ferguson knows he must solve his keeper problem sooner rather than later and will lodge a bid in the January transfer window.
