United are lining up a bid for Fiorentina goalkeeper Sebastian Frey as a replacement for Edwin van der Sar, according to the Daily Mail. The Dutchman may consider retirement at the end of the season, and Sir Alex reportedly eyes Frey as the ideal man to step in to his shoes.
In other rumours, Sir Alex will back Qatar’s bid for the 2022 World Cup, having been impressed during the Reds’ training camp in Doha this week. The Guardian also reports that the Glazers are considering the sale (ans subsequent lease back to the club) of Carrington.
