Jasper Cillessen aware of Manchester United interest

The Netherlands international says that he is aware of rumours linking him with a move to Louis van Gaal’s side but has added that he is not putting much thought over it

With David de Gea set to leave Old Trafford for Real Madrid by the end of the summer transfer window, the Red Devils are actively pursuing a new number one for next season. One of the targets is Netherlands international Jasper Cillessen who is currently under contract with Dutch Eredivisie giants, Ajax Amsterdam.

However, Cillessen says that although he is aware of the whole situation, he is not really putting much thought into this matter and is more interested in what he achieves for Ajax.

‘Of course, you hear some things about it through the media,’ said Cillessen.

‘But I keep myself away from it and I have not heard from my agents. I have it really good with Ajax.

‘I am enjoying myself and I started training again with great pleasure.’
