Slavia Sofia goalkeeper Rais Mbolhi is to have a trial with Manchester United, the Bulgarian club said on Wednesday.
The French-born Mbolhi, 24, named in Algeria's preliminary squad for next month's World Cup in South Africa, has flown to England and will not take part in Slavia's last two matches this season.
'I've talked to (United manager) Alex Ferguson and he's going on trial,' club president Ventsislav Stefanov told the Bulgarian state agency BTA.
Mbolhi, who also represented France at youth level, joined Slavia in June and was voted the Bulgarian league's best keeper seven months later.
