Metro have Manchester United fans in a spin here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim that the club could well be set to face Arsenal with reserve stopper Anders Lindegaard between the sticks.
This is because of the injury to David De Gea who will be out for at least four weeks after dislocating a finger on recent international duty with Spain.
With concerns over the fitness of Victor Valdes who is currently on trial, Louis van Gaal is yet to add him to his squad, leaving Danish international Lindegaard with a rare chance to impress the Red Devils manager.
Over a couple of games of pool and a drink with our landlord, our punters note that the goalkeeping situation seems to be a huge issue for van Gaal given how badly their players have done defensively this season and how many times David De Gea has saved them.
For the crunch clash with Arsenal this forthcoming Saturday, there is little hope of Valdes being added to the squad in time and some of our punters think van Gaal should take the chance regardless of his fitness!
Manchester United fans. How big a blow is the injury to David De Gea ahead of the weekend clash with the Gunners? Do you believe Victor Valdes will sign eventually? Let us know your thoughts below.
