Van der Sar set to hang up gloves

Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar is reportedly ready to hang up his gloves at the end of next season.

The 38-year-old Dutchman has made more than 130 league appearances for the Red Devils since arriving from Fulham in 2005, helping Sir Alex Ferguson's side win three consecutive Premier League crowns and the Champions League.

However, the former Ajax and Juventus glove-man, who featured 130 times for his country, is now believed to be pondering retirement.

And he may quit the game at the conclusion of the 2009/10 campaign, with England stopper Ben Foster ready to take his place between the Old Trafford sticks.

"Edwin has reviewed his options after each season and thinks this could be his last year," said a United source in The Sun.

"He is determined to go out at the top and is raring to go next season."
