Edwin van der Sar is hoping he will be the answer to Manchester United's search for a keeper to fill the void left by Peter Schmeichel.
Van der Sar, 34, has signed for the Old Trafford club subject to a medical and becomes the eighth keeper signed by United since Schmeichel left in 1999.
"They've tried a lot of keepers and I will perform the best that I can," said the Dutch international.
"I'll do my best to get halfway to what Peter achieved at Old Trafford."
Van der Sar is set to join United on 1 July and has agreed a two-year-deal.
He hopes to have more success than the other keepers - Mark Bosnich, Massimo Taibi, Raimond van der Gouw, Fabien Barthez, Roy Carroll and Tim Howard - who have attempted to replace Schmeichel.
He added: "The next few years will be great for me and I hope to bring United back to where they belong.
"Maybe, with a couple more adjustments in the team, we will be fully ready for them (Chelsea)."
