Man United transfers: Peter Schmeichel runs rule over Jasper Cillessen

Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel says Jasper Cillessen wouldn't be a good signing for Red Devils

Peter Schmeichel says Manchester United target Jasper Cillessen would not be a good replacement for David De Gea.

The Red Devils shot stopper’s future remains up in the air after manager Louis van Gaal opted against playing the 24-year-old in their 1-0 win against Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.

De Gea is continuing to be linked with a move to 10-time European champions Real Madrid, who are reportedly lining up a bid in excess of £30m for the players’s and fans’s player of the year for 2014/15 season.

But United legend Schmeichel isn’t convinced by talk of Van Gaal signing Netherlands international Cillessen.

“Cillessen is a good goalkeeper, but [Van Gaal] took him off for the penalty shootout at the World Cup and that shows some kind of no trust,” Schmeichel told talkSPORT.

“I think he doesn’t trust him 100% and I wouldn’t like a goalkeeper like that at Manchester United.”

The 13-time Premier League champions eased to a 1-0 win against Spurs thanks to a Kyle Walker own goal in the first half.
