Man United on alert as Premier League target opens door to summer deal

Long-term Manchester United target Ron Vlaar has plunged his future into doubt by claiming he can do better than Aston Villa.

The 30-year-old centre-back, who impressed for the Netherlands at last year’s World Cup, said on the Mirror website: “I want to maximise my career and I think I can go a step higher.

“I will look at it and go quietly.”

It comes amid a period of overall uncertainty for Villa fans with owner Randy Lerner ready to sell the club. © 2017 Frontier Theme
