Sir Alex has been keeping and eye on the 26-year-old since the summer and has recently been in talks with the Dane’s club over the possibility of a move to Old Trafford.
Some plonker down at the AaFK website made it all official, if only for a few minutes, last night on the club’s website.
‘AaFK and Manchester United have agreed Anders Lindegaard’s switch,’ the website announced.
‘The agreement was signed recently and it is a dream come true for the Dane.’
Lindegaard is a fairly decent keeper. He has four caps for Denmark and managed to keep a clean sheet against the Czech Republic on Wednesday.
The 6ft 4″ giant will not look out of place stood next to Van der Sar and United fans will hope he has enough time to improve before Edwin’s probable retirement come the end of the season. For everyone that dislikes United, cross your fingers and think “Taibi”.
He is set to undergo a medical in Manchester to complete a switch worth around £3.5million.
