Financial woes put Manchester United on transfer alert

Manchester United has been put on transfer alert after Felix Magath conceded that he will be powerless to prevent Manuel Neuer leaving the club.

It is no secret that Sir Alex Ferguson is on the lookout for a new goalkeeper, to replace the ageing Edwin van der Sar, and the German stopper has been continually linked with a move to Old Trafford.

Magath has revealed that while he would like to keep Neuer at Schalke, the club’s financial situation may dictate the sale of the talented 24-year-old:

“Of course I do not trust entirely that I will be able to keep Manuel Neuer and all the other players.”

“Although the situation is somewhat more difficult with less revenue, we have created the conditions to become champions in years to come.” Bild
