Holland World Cup keeper Jasper Cillesson has emerged as a A?25m target for Louis Van Gaal.
Cillessen, remembered for being substituted before the quarterfinal penalty shootout against Costa Rica excelled under Louis van Gaal as Netherlands finished third at last summer’s World Cup and Van Gaal is keen to replace Madrid bound David De Gea with the Holland International.
United are looking for a goalkeeper after Van Gaal admitted that Manchester United are almost certain to lose their Player Of The year to Real Madrid.
United have offered De gea a lucrative new contract worth A?150,000 a week, but the Spaniard is yet to sign it.
Van Gaal signed former Barcelona number one Victor Valdes in the winter transfer window, but at 33, Valdes will certainly not be a successor to De Gea.
Ajax, who are Cillesson’s current employers are determined not to let the Dutch international leave cheaply and Ajax Sporting Director Marc Overmars insists not even a bid of 25million euros (A?17.8million) would tempt the Dutch club to sell .
Reports on Monday suggested Cillessen was a target for United but sporting director Marc Overmars told De Telegraaf: “Jasper is not for sale, not even for a 25 million.”
Former Arsenal and Barcelona player Overmars also also said United are yet to bid for Cillessen.
Manchester United have also identified Spurs French Goalkeeper Hugo Lloris as an replacement for De Gea.
