Manchester United have contacted Edwin van der Sar over a return to the club as director of football, according to The Sun.

Van der Sar is currently the chief executive at Ajax and worked alongside Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag at the Dutch club.

Manchester United have reportedly been in contact with Van der Sar about the role of director of football at the club and contacted the former Manchester United goalkeeper last week.

Ajax are making plans to replace Van der Sar should he opt to depart for Manchester United and are lining-up their legendary ex-defender Danny Blind, father of ex-United ace Daley Blind, to replace him.
