Edwin Van der Sar has revealed in the Dutch press that Manchester United have decided on his replacement, but it’s not Schalke’s Manuel Neuer.

“United have made their decision,” he said. “It’s not Neuer, but I can’t say any more than that.”

Peter Schmeichel has claimed that Bayern Munich-bound Neuer is the best keeper in the world though.

“He is probably the best goalkeeper in the world,” he said. “He is 25 years of age but he’s very mature in the way he plays. He doesn’t make mistakes – I haven’t seen him make a single mistake – and the way he played yesterday, he wasn’t lucky in the way that he saved the shots and one-on-ones, it was very calculated. I just thought his overall game was fantastic and absolutely well-suited for Manchester United.”
