Van der Sar responds to Januzaj link: ‘Ajax can’t afford Man United starlet’

first_img1 Manchester United midfielder Adnan Januzaj will not be making a January switch to Ajax, according to the club’s marketing director Edwin van der Sar.Recent reports have suggested the 19-year-old may seek a move away from Old Trafford if his lack of first-team minutes continues under new manager Louis van Gaal, with the Amsterdam outfit one of the clubs mentioned with an interest.Van der Sar himself spent six years at Old Trafford, winning five Premier League titles and the Champions League with the Red Devils before retiring in 2011.And while the goalkeeping legend admitted he was a fan of Januzaj’s talents, he confessed it would be difficult for Ajax to raise the funds required to bring him to the Eredivisie.“Januzaj is struggling to earn minutes, but he will be fine,” Van der Sar told Het Laatste Nieuws.“Can Ajax offer him a lifeline? Well, if you have his agent’s number, give it to me in confidence. But I fear we cannot afford to pay his salary.” Manchester United midfielder Adnan Januzaj last_img
