Edwin van der Sar remains one of the top keepers in the Premier League.

Unfortunately, it has to be recognized that the Dutch international cannot go on forever and will, one day, have to be replaced.

With his natural successor, Ben Foster, having been sold to Birmingham City, it`ll be interesting to see who, if anyone, Sir Alex Ferguson brings in on either a short or long term basis.

On a long term basis the latest rumour to hit our desks suggests that Sir Alex has targeted the German international keeper, Manuel Neuer.

Neuer, currently on the books of Schalke, would command a sizeable fee but, to be honest, is the class of keeper we should be looking at to eventually replace our reliable Dutchman!
