Manchester United join the race for Inter Milan star Stefan de Vrij
The Dutch centre-back joined Inter Milan from Lazio in 2018 and has since then gone on to become one the best defenders in Serie A. He has established himself as a key player for the Nerazzurri and put in some great performances for the club.
The 30-year-old defender has had yet another good season for Simone Inzaghi’s team. The Netherlands defender has played 41 times for the club this season, scoring one goal and providing one assist across all competitions.
The former Lazio man has a contract with the Italian club till 2023 and with a contract that is expiring next summer, he could be available for a cut price deal this summer.
Manchester United are in the midst of a squad overhaul this season and it remains to be seen as to what improvements they’d make to the squad.
In Raphael Varane, the Red Devils have a high quality centre-back who can continue leading the team for many more seasons. However, the same cannot be said about the other options we have to play in central defence.
Harry Maguire has been somewhat of a flop ever since his big money move from Leicester City. Victor Lindelof has been extremely inconsistent and bringing in a new defender seems to be a wise choice for the Red Devils.
Whilst de Vrij will definitely bring in a lot of experience to Erik ten Hag’s team and he can be signed on a cheap price but having Varane who already is experienced means Man United would do better off bringing in a younger centre-back.
