Reports are out claiming that Manchester United are watching Lille defender Simon Kjaer.

United boss Louis van Gaal is in the market for a new centre-half signing and Ekstra Bladet says Kjaer, 26, is on his shortlist.

Kjaer is regarded highly by former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who is soon to meet with Van Gaal for a season review.

Lille rate the Dane in the €15 million class.

“I will only go if a top club wants me. Either this season or the next. Otherwise, there is really no reason to leave Lille. When changing clubs, stability is important. The club has to offer me a long-term perspective.

“Here in Lille I have a certain status and my family feels at home in the city,” he said recently.
