Exclusive: Man United Boss Draws Up £96m Five Star January Shopping List Including Serie A Trio and Aston Villa Captain

Nigel de Jong Holland

Louis van Gaal is also looking at another Dutch international, in the form of uncompromising defensive midfielder Nigel de Jong.

The AC Milan man is in a similar contractual situation to Vlaar and Man United are ready to offer £9m for the former Man City man, an offer that Filippo Inzaghi may accept as he continues to set about building a more youthful San Siro squad.

The 29 year old enforcer could provide valuable strength in the middle of the park and whilst new signing Daley Blind offers a similar steely ability arguably the former Ajax man is a more rounded performer.

De Jong would provide more strength in depth and could offer van Gaal a cost effective option to boost the quality of his squad.
