Transfer Gossip: Akinfeev keen to join United

Posted by united4ever2009 on September 11, 2009


CSKA Moscow goalkeeper Igor Akinfeev has claimed he would welcome the opportunity to play for Manchester United.

The young Russia international has attracted admiring glances from some of Europe’s leading teams after his impressive displays for club and country.

Akinfeev has also been linked with Bayern Munich and Arsenal, while Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been credited with an interest.

With Holland international Edwin van der Sar approaching the latter stages of his career, Ferguson could be tempted to bring in further competition for England hopeful Ben Foster.

And the 23-year-old has intimated that he would find it hard to ignore the prospect of a move to the Premier League champions.

The Sun quotes Akinfeev as saying: “CSKA is a great club but every player would love to prove their worth at United.
