The 23 year old was also one of the standout performers at the World Cup last year where he played in all the matches under current United manager Louis van Gaal. He also scored a crucial goal in the opening game against defending champions Spain.

The Red Devils have been short in central defence all season and a move for the Dutch international would make a perfect sense for both parties.
