Man Utd still to hear from Van der Sar about next season

Manchester United are still to hear from Edwin van der Sar about whether he will continue next season.

Manchester United are still to hear from Edwin van der Sar about whether he will continue next season.

The Manchester Evening News says the Reds are waiting for their 39-year-old Dutch keeper to come to them with an answer to their offer.

In past years Van der Sar has always agreed his new extension in December, but this campaign his future plans were thrown into confusion when his wife suffered a brain haemorrhage just before Christmas.

She is making a good recovery in Holland but it has understandably put the keeper's plans on the back-burner.

That and the fact he turns 40 in October have made it a big decision for Van der Sar.

"I have given loads of thought to whether I will continue," he said.

But the final decision has yet to be made and United are happy to wait for him to make up his mind.
