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.
“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.
United make the trip to Villa Park on Friday night to face Tim Sherwood’s Aston Villa side.
