Manchester United eyeing Keita Balde Diao, Stefan de Vrij

Jose Mourinho has reportedly set his sights on Lazio duo Keita Balde Diao and Stefan de Vrij, according to reports from the Italian press.

Portuguese tactician is nurturing a long-standing interest in Lazio centre-back Stefan de Vrij, who appears to be stalling on signing a new deal with the Serie A club.

Several Premier League clubs have already expressed interest in the Dutch defender who is thought to be eyeing a move to Tottenham, although Chelsea and Manchester United are keeping a close eye on the 24-year-old.

In addition to de Vrij, Manchester United are reportedly interested in bringing another Lazio player, Keita Balde Diao, who is being regarded as a replacement for Wayne Rooney, should the Manchester United captain leave the Old Trafford club.

Senegalese forward is currently being offered a new contract at Lazio, but the talks have been stalled and Keita Balde Diao is being touted for a move to the Premier League as well, although Serie A champions Juventus are also being linked with a move for the 21-year-old.
