United linked with cut-price January defender signing.
Manchester United are reportedly lining up a £4m bid to sign Aston Villa defender Ron Vlaar in the January transfer window, according to the Daily Express.
The Red Devils are in need of strengthening at the back after an inconsistent start to the season, and manager Louis van Gaal is keen to recruit his fellow countryman Vlaar.
The 29-year-old was linked with United and Arsenal in the summer transfer window, though a move never materialised as he remained at Villa Park.
Still, Vlaar’s contract expires at the end of this season and the club may look to avoid losing him for free as they sell him on the cheap this winter.
