Man Utd in contact with Fiorentina for keeper Frey

Manchester United have approached Fiorentina for goalkeeper Sebastien Frey.

Tuttosport says United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has made a move to bring Frey to England this summer.

Ferguson sees the Frenchman as the ideal man to succeed Edwin van der Sar as United's long-term No1.

Frey is available from Fiorentina following their capture of former Celtic keeper Artur Boruc earlier this summer.
