Manchester United are reportedly ready to make a move for Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper Rene Adler.
United are ready to trigger Adler’s £15million get-out clause.
Adler admitted earlier this week that he would be keen to move to Old Trafford as a replacement for Edwin van der Sar, who is expected to retire at the end of the season.
Adler said: “I have told the board of Leverkusen that I am not willing to discuss any kind of new contract until April.
“I just want to achieve a Champions League spot with my team here now.
“But everyone here knows that I have higher ambitions and everyone knows that Manchester United is my dream club.
“The board of the club are aware of the special clause in my contract.”
He added: “As a young kid all my friends were interested in cartoons, MTV, and German television programmes, but I was only interested in one person: Peter Schmeichel, who was in goal for Manchester United.
“I thought he was fantastic and loved every minute he was on tv with United.
“My whole bedroom was full of Schmeichel posters and United things. I also had one or two other heroes in football, like Paul Gascoigne and Zidane.
“But nobody, in my eyes, was as impressive as Schmeichel.”
