Feyenoord defender Stefan de Vrij could still follow Louis van Gaal to Manchester United after admitting he may leave the Dutch club after the World Cup.

The 22-year-old is at the centre of transfer speculation following another impressive campaign for Feyenoord which is likely to have earned him a starting role in van Gaal's starting line-up for Netherlands in Brazil this summer.

Liverpool, Tottenham Hotspur and Lazio have also been credited with interest in the centre half but de Vrij has also been tipped to join his national team manager at Old Trafford following the conclusion of the World Cup campaign.

And the defender has admitted there is a strong possibility he has played his last game for Feyenoord.

"My future? Yes, there is a chance I will be leaving, but now I am just thinking about the World Cup," de Vrij told RTV Rijnmond.

"I still do not know anything definite, so it is pointless saying too much about it."

De Vrij, who has just one year remaining on his current contract, has already seen one offer for his services from Lazio turned down by Feyenoord.

With both Nemanja Vidic and Rio Ferdinand leaving United this summer, one of Van Gaal's priorities upon his arrival will be to add reinforcements to his backline.

The departure of the two long-serving centre halves leaves the new manager with the options of Jonny Evans, Phil Jones and Chris Smalling with Michael Keane another option after impressive spells out on loan.

However, it remains likely the Dutch coach will bring in another centre half as part of an overhaul of the squad that recorded their worst ever Premier League finish last season.

United remain linked with a clutch of Netherlands internationals who were named in the final squad of 23 on Saturday. De Vrij's Feyenoord teammates Bruno Martins Indi and Jordy Clasie are also among the names linked with moves to Old Trafford this summer along with PSV Eindhoven forward Memphis Depay.
