Van der Sar calms Man Utd fears over De Gea departure

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar says the club can replace David De Gea.

The Spaniard has stalled on signing a new deal worth £290,000-a-week.

He could enter January able to sign a pre-contract with foreign clubs, and van der Sar says United could replace the former Atletico Madrid man.

"Other goalkeepers can also fill the gap," the Dutchman said.

"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.

"The decision needs to come at a certain point. It's taken a long time now, so it's a case of 'yes' or 'no' but I'm not a director of United."
