Coach Frank de Boer has confirmed Manchester United’s interest in Celtic star Virgil Van Dijk
Red Devils boss Louis Van Gaal is monitoring the Dutchman’s situation at Celtic as he searches for suitable enforcements for his depleted defence.
And De Boer has revealed the Frenchman’s interest, although he believes a move to the Premier League is too soon.
As quoted on the Daily Express website, he said: “It is no surprise to me that he is being linked with clubs like Arsenal and Manchester United.
“They are both in the situation where they could use another top central defender and they are not easy to find.
“I am sure that he could be a success for any club in Europe but Celtic will know exactly what they have and no coach will ever want to sell in January.
“It is such a difficult window to sign players that you don’t want to lose your best one during it.
“It would be good for him to win trophies in the SPL first before he thinks about anything else – it will all be a part of his education.”
