Man United transfers: Jasper Cillessen rules out Red Devils move
Manchester United target Jasper Cillessen rules out a move to the Red Devils
Jasper Cillessen says he won’t be joining Manchester United this summer despite being linked with a switch to Old Trafford as a potential replacement for David De Gea.
The 20-time English champions are facing a battle to keep the Spain international at the club as Real Madrid look to snap up the shot stopper following Iker Casillas’s exit.
I, the club, or my agent have never heard anything. As for me, this season begins and ends at Ajax.
Cillessen played under United manager Louis van Gaal during the Netherlands’s World Cup campaign, helping the Oranje to finish third in last summer’s tournament in Brazil.
However, Ajax goalkeeper Cillessen dealt United a blow in the race to land the shot stopper after he reaffirmed his commitment to the Dutch side.
“As far as I know it [interest from Manchester United] has never been a thing,” Cillessen is quoted as saying by GOAL.
“I, the club, or my agent have never heard anything. As for me, this season begins and ends at Ajax.”
Van Gaal has already signed Argentina goalkeeper Sergio Romero on a free transfer in the summer transfer window.
United face Club Brugge in the second leg of their Champions League play-off in Belgium on Wednesday night.
