Hans van Breukelen is confident that the Netherlands international would be a perfect signing for Louis van Gaal who is in the market for a new number 1
Although the Red Devils have been playing hard ball with Real Madrid, it is clear that David de Gea will eventually join the Madrid giants which means that Manchester United are already looking for a good replacement.
And, the club’s search has led it to Ajax Amsterdam where Jasper Cillessen has established himself as one of the finest goalkeepers in Europe. And Breukelen is confident that his team’s archrival’s number 1 is a perfect replacement for De Gea.
He told Algemeen Dagblad: “If they are looking for a replacement for De Gea, then I think that Cillessen tops their list.
“It would be a logical step, because he’s a goalkeeper that wins points. I think Cillessen is a great goalkeeper. He looks a lot like Edwin van der Sar and fits the Premier League perfectly.”
