Lazio defender Stefan de Vrij is keen on a transfer to Manchester United this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is claiming that De Vrij feels that he is “ready” for a switch to the Premier League, and that Old Trafford would be his preferred destination.

The Netherlands international will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season after his contract with Napoli expires in the summer.

According to the same story, Manchester United are closely monitoring De Vrij’s situation and Lazio apparently believe that the Red Devils already have a deal in place to sign the defender.

The story also says that’s why Lazio have ended their talks with the defender about a four-year contract extension with the Serie A side.

The report says that Jose Mourinho is out to try and rebuild his defence in the summer, but De Vrij has also attracted interest from both Liverpool FC and Arsenal.

Manchester United are bound to be linked with a host of players in the coming months as the summer transfer window draws nearer.

Meanwhile, the Red Devils are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League clash against Chelsea FC at Old Trafford on Sunday.
