United want to bring Van Der Sar back to take up the role as Director of Football

Given the success Ajax had have with transfers in recent years, combined with the fact that United themselves have been very poor in regards to their dealings, we’re sure Red Devils fans will be eager to see Van Der Sar return in the near future.

If United manage to get this one over the line, we’re sure United will become a lot more savvy in future transfer markets given that they’d have Van Der Sar helping Solskjaer and Co with their business.
