Van der Sar pushing Man Utd to sign Ajax No1 Stekelenburg

Edwin van der Sar is urging Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to move for Ajax goalkeeper Maarten Stekelenburg.

The Daily Star Sunday says the United keeper, who retires at the end of the season at the age of 40, has recommended his successor in the Holland side to Ferguson.

And Van der Sar is now hoping Stekelenburg, 28, also follows him as United's first choice.

Dutch sources have revealed that a £10million summer move to Old Trafford for 6ft 6ins Stekelenburg is the talk of the Ajax dressing room.

But the final say rests with United boss Fergie.
