Rumours this morning suggest that Danny Welbeck is prepared to leave the club this summer. The lad from Longsight splits opinion amongst reds and whilst this is a concept I struggle with, given that he loves the club, has spent his life dreaming of playing for United and is still young enough to deserve patience, I too would like to see him score more goals.

The rumours linking Toni Kroos have gathering pace over the past few weeks, with the player's contract talks with club Bayern Munich hitting a stumbling block.

As it stands, Kroos is some way down the pecking order with his salary at the German champions. Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben are reportedly the top earners on £165k-a-week, followed by Bastian Schweinsteiger on £135k, Philipp Lahm on £120k, then Mario Götze on £115k.

Who Is The Best Goalkeeper In Europe?

Soccer Tickets Online at related • 1 view

That is a question I have been thinking about since research some stats on Inter Milan goalkeeper Samir Handanovic earlier this week.

The most common measurements used to compare goalkeepers are number of clean sheets and number of goal conceded.

If you look at the top four leagues in Europe combined (Serie A, La Liga, Bundesliga and Premier League) this is how the top goalkeepers stack up against each other

Most Clean Sheets

  • Morgan De Sanctis (Roma) – 9
  • Víctor Valdés (Barcelona) 7
  • Hugo Lloris (Spurs) – 7
  • Gianluigi Buffon (Juventus) – 6
  • Manuel Neuer (Bayern Munich) – 6
  • Artur Boruc (Southampton) – 6
  • Tim Howard (Everton) – 6
  • Jussi Jaaskelainen (West Ham) – 6

The one surprise name on the list is Jaaskelainen as West Ham are the team not in the top half of the table.

Better Goalkeeper: Gianluigi Buffon or Manuel Neuer?

Quite simply, the goalkeeper position is the hardest position to rate when comparing players. Often times goalkeepers can be made or broken by their team's success; unfairly condemned or built up thanks to the players in front of them. There are an abundance of goalkeepers in the game today that are considered "great" players, who have been the product of the team in front of them, while at the same time there are goalkeepers who don't get enough credit because their team makes them look bad.
