Former Manchester United favourite Edwin van der Sar is set to move back into club football with another of his former clubs, Ajax.

Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf are reporting that the new president of the Amsterdam club, Johan Cruyff, will continue his recruitment of some of the club’s most successful former players by inviting the 42-year-old retired goalkeeper to become a director.

Van der Sar hung up his boots following the 2010-11 season at Old Trafford, leaving a glimmering legacy behind him at Manchester United.

The Dutchman won four Premier League titles under Sir Alex Ferguson, as well as two League Cups and a UEFA Champions League medal.

However, his achievements at Manchester United were only matched by those he gained at Ajax - the club he with whom he began his professional career.

Four Eredivisie titles, three KNVB Cups, one UEFA Cup and a UEFA Champions League was the majority of his tally in Amsterdam as part of the legendary team from the mid-1990s.

Van der Sar holds records for the oldest Premier League winner, oldest Champions League finalists and he is the most capped player in history with Holland after representing them on 130 occasions
