With the media attention being focussed on who United will sign to replace Edwin van der Sar, a third name has been thrown into the hat.

Whilst many were expecting it to be a straight contest between David De Gea and Manuel Neuer, one tabloid publication is now pretty convinced that United representatives are in discussion with representatives of Sporting Lisbon to lure Rui Patricio to Old Trafford.

According to the tabloid in question the deal has moved on as far as discussing the transfer fee with United (reportedly) offering £7 million but with the Portuguese club (reportedly) hanging on for £12 million.

Let`s wait and see if this is the real deal shall we?
