“Other goalkeepers can also fill the gap. There are a few Premier League goalkeepers playing at the club who can also take the step up.

“I was 34 when I went to United. So there are lots of opportunities there.”

Van der Sar did leap to De Gea’s defence when questioned on the United No 1’s drop in form. 

“No. That happened to me, it happened to Ryan Giggs also, to everyone,” Van der Sar insisted. 

“Your form differs. He has been for so long at such a high level, so at a certain point it gets noticed, maybe not the first two times, but then people start to write about it. But he’ll be fine. He’s a great goalkeeper.”
