Leverkusen want United target to stay

Bayer Leverkusen are hoping to keep highly rated goalkeeper Rene Adler away from Manchester United – at least for a few seasons yet.

The Germany shot-stopper has been linked with a move to the English Premier League heavyweights, who will lose incumbent Edwin van der Sar to retirement at season’s end.

Adler – who missed the 2010 World Cup through injury – has been revealed as a long-time United fan.

But the 26-year-old appears set to stay at the BayArena, according to Leverkusen General Manager Rudi Voeller.

“Rene Adler has been a supporter of Manchester United since he was a child and he has a buy-out clause in his current contract just in case United come up,” the former Germany striker and manager told Sport 1.

“This clause is in a region of beyond 17 million pounds.”

“We have the ambition to keep him at our club and we are in good talks. We have the intention to see him sign on for more seasons.”
