Manchester United target Maarten Stekelenburg has revealed he is considering a contract offer from Ajax, while admitting he would be 'insane' to turn down the Red Devils.
The 28-year-old goalkeeper has been linked with a move to the Barclays Premier League champions for several months, but appears to be ready to put an end to speculation regarding his future.
"I have received a fantastic offer from Ajax which is under consideration," the Dutchman told NUsport magazine.
"There has been nothing else, zero. Maybe because I have been injured."
But, when asked about a potential move to Old Trafford, Stekelenburg added: "Anybody who does not want to play for Manchester United would be insane."
Despite United seemingly identifying Atletico Madrid's David de Gea as a successor to Edwin van der Sar, Stekelenburg is understood to have been the original first choice for the Old Trafford club.
This was confirmed by United first team coach René Meulensteen in January, who said: "Stekelenburg is indeed the goalkeeper who is at the top of our wanted list,
"We have naturally been talking a lot among ourselves about who should replace Van der Sar. Alex Ferguson has spoken about Stekelenburg with Edwin and that does not seem strange to me at all."
