Howard Hints at United Exit After van der Sar Deal

American goalkeeper Tim Howard has expressed doubt over his Manchester United future after Edwin van der Sar, the first-choice at Old Trafford, signed a new deal that will keep him with the Red Devils until 2008. "Edwin's contract affects my mind set," Howard told Everton's Web site. The 27-year old goalie, on a season-long loan with the Liverpool club, believes the new deal for van der Sar means United intends to keep him as backup. "It's like a game of chess. United have made their move and it tells me what I need to do," he said, adding, "If it doesn't happen at United, it can happen somewhere else." Howard has played very well for Everton this season, starting every game except the Toffees' away trip to Man United, as per his loan contract. "I don't do very well on the bench," added the former MetroStars keeper. "You need someone who accepts that position and doesn't rock the boat. It's not in my blood because I like a little bit of fire." That role at United is being filled this season by Pole Tomasz Kuszczack. Howard didn't say whether he intends to stay at Everton once his loan expires; Everton has yet to move to make the switch permanent. Read the original story...
