De Vrij has impressed at the World Cup finals, which saw him strongly linked with a move to Old Trafford with Dutch coach Louis van Gaal.

But Lazio, who made a move for De Vrij before the World Cup, are confident they will strike a deal with Feyenoord for the 22-year-old central defender.

"Many things have been said and written about De Vrij and his transfer to United but this is not true," Lazio sports dierctor Tare revealed, while also confirming their interest in Davide Astori.

"His agent has said clearly that he has never been to Manchester to meet with the English club. De Vrij's will is to play in Lazio. (Davide) Astori wants to come too, and we're talking with Cagliari to find an agreement."

The likes of Liverpool and Everton have also been strongly linked with De Vrij in recent months.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
