Manchester United target and potential David De Gea replacement Jasper Cillessen 'not for sale'

Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars has made it clear the goalie is going nowhere.

Manchester United are being linked with a move for Ajax keeper Jasper Cillessen. The Dutchman, who was Louis van Gaal's first choice keeper for the Netherlands at the World Cup last summer, was linked with a move to Manchester United by the Mirror this week - who said he was available for around £25 million.

But not long after those reports emerged it was made clear that Cillessen was not for sale. Ajax sporting director, and former Manchester United scourge, Marc Overmars told De Telegraaf earlier in the week that he was going nowhere this summer.

He stated:

"Jasper is not for sale, not even for €25 million."

Of course the links with Cillessen come after plenty of stories linking their current number one with a move away from the club.

David De Gea, who was recently voted the club's player and players' player of the year, is being heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid this summer, as the long-term replacement for Iker Casillas at the Bernabeu.

However, if Cillessen was their plan to replace him, Ajax seem pretty clear on the matter. He is not for sale.
