Cape Town - Stefan de Vrij will reportedly join Manchester United after the World Cup following claims the Premier League club have agreed a fee with Feyenoord to sign the Dutch defender.
The Red Devils are currently in the market for a new centre-back, with club captain Nemanja Vidic having joined Inter Milan, and the 22-year-old De Vrij is seen as an ideal replacement.
The Netherlands starlet increased his stock at the weekend after starring in the 5-1 World Cup thrashing of defending champions Spain, where he bagged his first international goal while helping to limit La Furia Roja to only a handful of chances.
And, Louis van Gaal, who will relinquish the Dutch national team reins to take up the United job after the Brazil spectacular, is believed to have earmarked De Vrij as one of his main transfer targets.
And the Old Trafford board appear to be open to the transfer, with reports from Holland claiming the English outfit have already agreed a deal with the player's club, and personal terms are now expected to be thrashed out when the World Cup comes to an end in July.
