The former goalkeeper is currently the CEO at Dutch side Ajax and he has been linked with a director of football position at United.

In an interview with Planet Futbol,Van der Sar said: “Besides my family, my wife and kids and everything I have two loves in my life.

“That’s Ajax, who gave me the opportunity to develop, they scouted me, they gave me the chance to shine in the world of football.

“And the last club of my career (Manchester United) also gave me a lot of attention, recognition and everything, developed at a later stage. And of course, I’d be interested in a position.”

“I need to learn a little more here [at Ajax], develop myself further and eventually let’s see what the future brings,” continued Van der Sar.

“United is a fantastic club, there’s a great following all over the world. Everybody wants to play for them and eventually, work for them.”
