Manchester United have brought in a number of club legends to come and help in one capacity or the other, and a huge role will be available at the end of the season.

Ed Woodward has decided to step down from his position, and a number of names have been linked as his replacement, one of which is legendary goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar.

Van der Sar is currently the chief executive of Dutch champions Ajax — and he’s often always being linked with a position at Old Trafford.

The Dutchman has now hinted that he could be interested in a move to Old Trafford, as he listed Ajax and Manchester United as the two clubs he could work for.

Van der Sar has told ESPN of the speculation linking him with United: “It’s nothing new for me, my name circulates there for a long time.”

He added on his future, with nothing being ruled out at this stage: “[With] the work and pressure, you should have a feeling with the club.

“I could do the things Ronald de Boer is doing – he works for us at Ajax and also here for you guys. He has more freedom than me, he has a good life.

“The pressure is different and I won’t work at a club where I don’t have a feeling. I could only do this for Ajax or United. I would not work for any other clubs.

“I am really happy with how we have [developed] Ajax in the last couple of years. We had ambitions 10 years ago to reach the top of Europe. We have reached that. We had to work really hard, we don’t have a rich owner and the government didn’t help us.”
