'We will see': Edwin van der Sar opens the door to Manchester United return once his time as Ajax's chief executive officer is overEdwin van der Sar has opened the door to possible return to Manchester United  There have been suggestions that he could become United's technical director Van der Sar is currently chief executive at another of his former clubs, Ajax The 48-year-old has urged United to sort out David de Gea's contract situation 

Edwin van der Sar has opened the door to a future move back to Manchester United when his time at Ajax ends.

The 48-year-old, chief executive with the Eredivisie champions, is being talked about as an option for when United eventually appoint a technical director.

Van Der Sar reaffirmed his commitment to Ajax but claimed he is open to new challenges and suggested a desire to take up different roles within a club.

Edwin van der Sar has suggested he could return to Manchester United when he leaves Ajax

‘You never know. At the moment, Ajax is the principal thought where I’m putting all my time and effort in and whatever happens in the future, we will see,’ the former United goalkeeper said.

‘I think the idea is that you have an opportunity to grow yourself and to learn. That’s what you do as a football player.

‘That happened when I went abroad to Italy and then when I went to England with Fulham and at United. It’s similar now.

‘At Ajax, we’re fighting hard to make sure we’re getting a different club into the higher echelons of European football and not coming from one of the big five countries.’

Van der Sar, who is currently Ajax's chief executive, played for United between 2005 and 2011

Van der Sar has urged United to sort out David de Gea's contract situation soon

Van Der Sar also implored United to sort out David de Gea’s contract situation — but insisted the club have enough quality to replace him if the Spaniard were to unexpectedly leave.

‘Other goalkeepers can also fill the gap,’ he added. ‘There are a few Premier League goalkeepers playing at the club who can also take the step up.

‘The decision needs to come at a certain point. It’s taken a long time now, so it’s a case of yes or no. Your form differs. He has been at such a high level for so long, so at a certain point it (a dip) gets noticed. 

‘Maybe not the first two times, but then people start to write about it. But he’ll be fine. He’s a great goalkeeper.’
