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.

Rodgers: Sterling can be striker

expect Pulis to have a nice Christmas dinner with his family- probably all sitting around the table wearing Christmas themed baseball caps, before he gets the call. Realistically he could end up at any number of clubs, it'll be interesting to see which club folds first.

s a Liverpool fan, I personally hate Palace. My pick would probably be Arsenal, which is funny because it seems the vast majority of their own fans don't even like them right now.
