It has been reported that Manchester United legend Edwin van der Sar insists they can survive the expected sale of David de Gea.
The Spanish international goalkeeper is expected to leave for Real Madrid this summer.
Van der Sar stated: “Of course, I don’t know the candidates to replace him if he’s going to leave the club. There’s been a lot of talk lately, and if he wanted to stay, he probably would have signed a new contract by now.
“At the start of the season you start with 11 players. Some things work out and other things you get a different type, so nobody is irreplaceable, that’s always the case.
“I’m sure United, if David is going to leave, they are going to find a good successor.
“Louis (van Gaal) also likes a goalkeeper who can play with his feet also and just behind the defence. Victor Valdes has also played like that at Barcelona for a while, or maybe they are looking for a different player.”
