Serie A side Lazio are prepared to offload Stefan di Vrij to Manchester United, provided they can match his £30m price tag.

The Holland international has been on the Red Devils radar since January 2015 when Louis van Gaal was still the head coach at Old Trafford.

According to The Express, the Serie A outfit are willing to sell their central defender over the summer after he declined a fresh extension at the Capital outfit.

De Vrij, who is also a target for Chelsea, has returned to his old self this campaign following a nasty knee problem which kept him out for most of last season.

The 25-year-old joined Lazio from Dutch side Feyenoord following his exploits for the Netherlands at the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

Apart from De Vrij, United are also hot on the trail of Benfica's Victor Lindelof for whom they plan to offer £40m during the summer transfer window.
