Man Utd Targeted Midfield Magician Asks For Switch – Reports

Kevin Strootman has reportedly asked Roma to allow him to move to Manchester United in January, with the sensational highly rated midfielder apparently hoping for a reunion with national team manager Louis van Gaal, as reported by Here Is The City.

Man Utd have emerged as one of the highest spending sides this summer in the transfer window, but there are no suggestions that they will let up any time soon. The quest for a return to Champions League football has seen them sign the likes of Angel Di Maria and Radamel Falcao, with both players commanding significant financial outlays to bring them to Old Trafford.

Roma’s Strootman has been consistently linked with a move to Manchester United over the course of the summer period, with his importance to Van Gaal’s Netherlands side being so clear that the Dutch manager completely changed his formation for the World Cup, playing the 3-5-2 Man Utd now use.

Strootman has now reportedly asked for a move in the New Year, with Van Gaal ready to risk £25m on a bid in January, with the assumption that Strootman will have fully recovered from his severe injury.

Constant links to Arturo Vidal aside, Strootman seems to be Van Gaal’s top target.

  1. Kevin Strootman isnt going anywhere. And why would he request to go play for a mid table team when he will be playing Champions League football and fighting for the Scudetto? Makes no sense and smells of more fabricated rumours. Keep dreaming Man Utd.

  2. They said the same of di maria. Money talks and man u are considerably richer than roma. Playing at old trafford and under Van gaal (His old national coach) are other reasons, but still really all about the money. See him in a red shirt soon!

  3. Roma is a make up team in champions league so every good player want to win the trophy not to just to play it and man u is the platform for him to actualize it.

  4. Manchester United is a dream club for every player.most expecially that LVG is in charge. The money is there to buy any player,even CR7 wants to return. man u for live.
