The former PSV Eindhoven star was one of the benefactors of the Argentinian's presence on Thursday, as he created a number of the club's goals against Juventus including the Dutchman's strike in New York.
While Veron's agent Fernando Hidalgo is claiming United are yet to make a decision on his client, van Nistelrooy believes his mind is already made up.
"I'm really glad for him because now he is going to stay at United," said the striker. "When he plays like he played in this match his is irreplaceable.
"If you ask any player in the Manchester United dressing room, none of us would be happy to see him leave. We all want him to stay and I think he will now.
"He sees this as a second chance and he is trying to make a new start. I feel really good for him."
