Feyenoord rejected Lazio’s offer for Stefan De Vrij as it was “too low” and he’s closer to Manchester United.
The 22-year-old defender impressed at the World Cup, where he earned a bronze medal under the guidance of Netherlands Coach Louis Van Gaal – now on the Old Trafford bench.
“It is logical for the player to leave, but it has to be for the right club and the right price,” Feyenoord director of sport Martin Van Geel told RTV Rijnmond.
“I am happy we did not accept Lazio’s offer, as it was too low. After that, no other proposal has been received.”
The Mirror claims Manchester United are lining up a bid worth €12m (£10m).
This is considerably higher than the reported €6m put forward by Lazio (£4.7m).
There were suggestions this week that the Biancocelesti were increasing their offer to €8m (£6.3m), but it is still well below the Manchester United figure.
