Manchester United have an overcrowded central defense at the moment with stars like Rojo, Blind, Smalling, Jones and Bailly around.
However, manager Jose Mourinho is ready to further strengthen his back line by signing a world class central defender next summer.
Recently, we covered a report (via The Sun) claiming that the former Chelsea boss wants to sell Daley Blind and replace him with Swedish international Victor Lindelof.
The Benfica star is not the only defender currently linked with a move to Old Trafford. Lazio’s Stefan de Vrij has been heavily linked as well.
Numerous reports are claiming that the Dutch international will leave the Serie A side in the summer. According to the latest reports in Italy (CalcioNews24 via Corriere dello Sport), the £30 million rated center half will bid farewell to Lazio in June and he is expected to join Man United, who are in pole position to secure his signature.
De Vrij has been fantastic for the Italian side since completing his move from Feyenoord.
As per the provided CalcioNews24 link, Lazio has won 2 points per game when Stefan has featured and only 1.4 points per game in his absence. The 25-year-old international has been tracked by Mourinho for quite some time and it will not come as any surprise if he ends up joining him at Manchester United.
