    Stefan de Vrij



    Name: Stefan de Vrij
    Current Team: Lazio
    Shirt Number: 3
    Positions: CB Defender
    Age: 25 years old (05-02-1992)
    Height: 189cm
    Weight: 78kg
    Nationality: Netherlands

    De Vrij has been regularly linked with Manchester United in recent years, especially during the Louis van Gaal era at Old Trafford. After being named in the 2014 World Cup Team of the Tournament, the Dutch centre-back swapped Feyernood for Lazio and became an instant success in Italy. In fact, his maiden campaign was so impressive that he was widely considered the best newcomer in Serie A.

    Praised for his astute reading of the game and ability to carry the ball from the back, De Vrij was expected to cement his status as a Serie A star the following year. Unfortunately, though, he suffered a serious knee injury in August, which ruled him out for the entire season. Many doubted whether he could fully recapture his best form, but the Dutchman simply picked up from where he'd left off last term.

    His contract expires at the end of the 2017/18 season. He is reportedly willing to put a 20m release clause so Lazio can sell him for money.

    He is part of the reason of Lazio's good form. I think we should go for him as a Pique replacement/back-up

    I think we have our defender issue sorted for quite a long time. Don't think we should go for him. We have Umtit(24), Yeri Mina (23) who we probably will buy either this Jan or next summer and Marlon(22), who's showing quite good performance in Nice. 3 out of 4 spot been taken by talented and class youngsters, the 4th spot will be Pique untill he retires which I am grand with.

    We need a tall, right-footed defender in case Yerry Mina doesn't work out

    Ya, if any of them don't work out then probably but not before.

    De Vrij is great. Been a fan of him ever since WC 2014.

    marlon is 182 cm
    centerbacks do not have to be 190-200 cm gianst to succeed for us, one of our best defenders was puyol (178cm)
    we need strong athletic defenders (like umtiti or puyol who would rival pique with his jumps)

    regardless idk if this matters too much but I would prefer us to find a left footed defender to backup umtiti
    right now pique and mascherano are our right footed and verm and umtiti are left footed.

    maybe lucho was the only one that put importance into that but who knows.
