Manchester United target, Jasper Cillessen of Ajax, has welcomed reports linking him with a move to the Old Trafford, despite not being sure if such move will become a reality this summer, according to the Metro.
Cillessen, who kept 12 clean sheets for the Dutch club last season, is one of the goalkeepers being pencilled down by Louis van Gaal as a possible replacement for David De Gea, who has refused to put pen to paper on a new deal that will see him extend his contract, which is expected to expire by the end of next season.
The 26-year old goalkeeper is anxious to make the move to the EPL; but may have to wait to see what happens before the end of the window.
“I only hear rumours. I don’t worry about it until I hear something from my agent—if I don’t hear anything I’ll enjoy playing at Ajax. I don’t know anything,” Cillessen was quoted as saying.
“I asked Memphis Depay if he heard anything but he didn’t know anything either. It would be a great step but I am happy at Ajax,” the goalkeeper added.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils are reportedly on the verge of agreeing a deal to sign Argentine goalkeeper, Sergio Ramos, who is a free agent. It is not known at this time if the Argentine will be a replacement for De Gea or a backup.
De Gea’s future is still up in the air despite the fact that Real Madrid already confirmed the signing of Kiko Casilla from Espanyol last Friday.
