Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has finally opened up on his thoughts about playing in the EPL, the 26 year old goal tender revealed he is aware of Manchester United’s interest in his signature and seem to be on the edge about a possible switch.
The shot-stopper knows Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal well from his time in charge of the Netherlands and is expected to bid for Cillessen if David de Gea moves to Real Madrid this summer.
“Of course, you hear some things about it through the media,” the former NEC star told Ajax’s official site when asked about being linked with a switch to the Premier League.
“But I keep myself away from it [speculation] actually and I have not heard from my agents.”
Cillessen, who started every match under Van Gaal at the 2014 FIFA World Cup as Holland recorded a third place finish, is contracted to the Dutch giants until 2018.
And it has been revealed by sources in Amsterdam that it would take a sizeable bid for United to capture the goalkeeper this summer.
The Ajax No.1 continued: “I have it really good with Ajax.
“I am enjoying myself and I started training again with great pleasure.”
With this comments, there is still a lot to do if LVG really want him at Old Trafford.
