STAR PLAYER rejects Man Utd link

Cillessen not in talks with United

Ajax goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen has dismissed speculation that he has agreed personal terms over a summer move to Manchester United.



The Netherlands number one has been strongly linked with a switch to Old Trafford, with the future of David de Dea still uncertain.

It had been earlier reported that the 26-year-old had had a verbal agreement with Louis van Gaal's side over a summer transfer, but the shot-stopper now refutes these claims.

"I've read that this weekend I have spoken with Van Gaal. But the last time I did was during the Sports Gala late last year. Also, my management has not heard from United." he told Dutch publication Het Parool.

Cillessen played under Van Gaal during last year's World Cup finals in Brazil.
