The Old Trafford side are set to lose David de Gea to Real Madrid and van Gaal sees his former Dutch national team charge as an ideal replacement for the Spaniard.

Ajax will demand £25m for the 26 year old, who was van Gaal’s first choice starter during Holland’s 2014 World Cup finals run to third spot.

Jasper Cillessen is a solid top-notch keeper though may not be deemed as in the same league as De Gea and one would have to wonder as to why Man United opted to sign Victor Valdes in January if he wasn’t considered a ‘worthy’ successor to the Bernabeu bound goalie.
