Louis van Gaal has been chasing the Lazio centre-back for some months and his Old Trafford side have apparently made an £18.9m bid for the 23 year old.

Man United have struggled defensively at times this term and a move to bring in a fresh central defensive option would be a sensible one to consider.

Van Gaal knows de Vrij well from his time in charge of the Dutch national team, handing the tough tackler a prominent role in his 2014 World Cup finals squad last summer.

Man United look likely to secure a top four finish and the resultant Champions League berth will aid their push to secure top talents when the transfer window reopens.
