Sir Alex Ferguson called it the best display by a keeper, against Manchester United, he had seen during his long reign.

Manuel Neuer was absolutely superb at keeping United at bay and Sir Alex, after the final whistle ensured he shook the young German keeper by the hand.

Neuer, a subject of much transfer speculation, is expected to sign for Bayern Munich this summer a fact that Sir Alex acknowledged by remarking, when pressed about the keeper,

“I think we know that but he was fantastic.”

Well, if we`ve any sense we`ll move heaven and earth to change that and entice the youngster to Old Trafford.

Perhaps Sir Alex should simply address the board and repeat another comment he made last night following Neuer`s sensational performance,

“It was the finest display of goalkeeping against us.”

And just tell them to go get him!
