At the World Cup in Brazil, the Netherlands impressed by finishing third and beating teams like Spain and Chile on the way, all under the leadership of manager Louis van Gaal—who is now in charge of Manchester United.

During most of the tournament, Van Gaal opted for defensive tactics by employing a back five and aiming for counter-attacks.

One of the standout men in this back five was young Feyenoord defender Stefan de Vrij. The 22-year-old, who played his first international tournament, formed a rock-solid defensive wall with Ron Vlaar and Bruno Martins Indi. 

Unsurprisingly, interest in De Vrij is now high, and teams like Lazio and Manchester United have been linked with the Feyenoord man, according to Sky Sports.

It remains to be seen where De Vrij will end up, but in anticipation of a move, here we have a look at five teams who would do well to at least consider making a move for the centre-back.
