Ajax CEO Rules Out Sale Of Man United Target


Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar has ruled out the exit of Ajax players including Manchester United target Frenkie De Jong.

Edwin Van Der Sar occupies the CEO role at Dutch Eredivisie giants Ajax Amsterdam.

The ex-Red Devils shot stopper ruled out an exit for Ajax players in an interview monitored by the Daily Express.

According to him, the players won’t leave the club during the January transfer window and that they have no reason to sell them.

He went on to add that Ajax Amsterdam are in a sound financial state and that only clubs in financial difficulties won’t have a choice but to sell their players when interested sides come calling.

Dutch international midfielder Frenkie De Jong has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford but it seems like the Red Devils will have to wait till the summer for the chance to sign him.

The 21-year-old is also attracting the interests of European heavyweights like Spanish La Liga giants Barcelona and Premier League title holders Manchester City.

Frenkie De Jong is one of the most sought-after players on the European football scene alongside teammate Matthijs De Ligt who has also been linked with Manchester United.
