Man Utd wish list for Maarten Stekelenburg to top target

Maarten Stekelenburg favourite to be United new No1

Maarten Stekelenburg is Man Utd first choice to replace his fellow Dutch goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar at Old Trafford.

"Stekelenburg is the keeper who is at the top of our wanted list," Muelensteen (united first team coach) told Dutch magazine Voetbal International. 'We talk a lot among ourselves about who should replace Van der Sar. Alex Ferguson has spoken about Stekelenburg with Edwin.'

United have also looked at two highly regarded keepers, Atletico Madrid's 20-year-old David de Gea and Sporting Lisbon's Rui Patricio, 22. Stekelenburg is far more experienced, having played in last summer's World Cup final.
