Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar warns David de Gea he is not irreplaceable at United.

De Gea is out of contract at the end of this season and talks over a new £350,000-a-week deal are ongoing between player and the club.

Although Van der Sar recons the Spanish player can be replaced if he decides to move on.

Asked about De Gea’s contract status, Van der Sar said: “The decision needs to come at a certain point. It takes a long time now, so it’s a case of ‘yes’ or ‘no’, but I’m not a director of United. “Other goalkeepers can also fill the gap. There are a few Premier League goalkeepers playing at the club who can also take the step up. I was 34 when I went to United. So there are lots of opportunities there.”
