Top Manchester United target Jasper Cillessen has revealed that Ajax will do everything that they can to block his prospective move to Old Trafford.
The Netherlands number one is believed to be United’s first choice to replace PFA Player of the Year nominee David de Gea, who is bound for Real Madrid.
But Cillessen does not expect Ajax to roll over for the Red Devils, with manager Frank de Boer having already stressed that the 26-year-old goalkeeper is not going anywhere this summer.

“The Ajax management are going to make it really difficult when the interest becomes concrete,” he is quoted as saying by The Mirror.
“If I had planned to leave, I would not have signed a new contract until 2018. My old contract was expiring in the summer of 2016 and in that case this summer would have been the perfect moment to leave.
“Frank de Boer has been very clear when he received questions about my transfer – he wants to block it.”
Tottenham Hotspur’s Hugo Lloris and Atletico Madrid’s Jan Oblak are reportedly United’s alternative options should they fail to prise Cillessen away to Amsterdam.
