Manchester United are reportedly interested in Galatasaray goalkeeper Fernando Muslera.
The Uruguay international has been impressive for the Turkish giants this season, especially during their 1-0 win over the Red Devils in the Champions League group stage clash. And, according to the Express, United have already made an offer of around £14m to snap up the 26-year-old, while the Daily Mail claims a bid is yet to be tabled, despite the interest.
The reports also state that Sir Alex Ferguson wants Muslera to replace United's current No 1 David De Gea, who has failed to produce consistent performances since his arrival at Old Trafford in 2011. Though the Red Devils currently have a seven-point lead at the top of the league table, they have conceded more goals this season - 28 in 21 matches - than any other club in the top 10 positions.
De Gea has been linked with a return to Spain, with Real Madrid reportedly interested in him. Meanwhile, United are also understood to be keen on Stoke City stopper Asmir Begovic.
SAF Relishes Late Drama
Meanwhile, Ferguson has revealed that he relishes United's late goals. The Red Devils have found the back of the net in the closing stages regularly this season, converting losses to draws and draws to wins. The trend continued last week with Robin van Persie's late equaliser in the 2-2 draw against West Ham United at Upton Park in the FA Cup.
"At the end of the day, the finish to these games sends everybody home absolutely over the moon. They'll be walking down the street towards their cars, or getting in their cars and driving home, telling each other: 'What a game, absolutely fantastic," Ferguson told the Telegraph.
"I suppose the excitement of games like the Boxing Day win over Newcastle [4-3, in the closing moments] gets everyone going. You'd rather do without it, but being the manager of Manchester United you have to relish it and expect it to happen. That's how it is," the Scot added.
