Manchester United may have to pay over £30m to land Strootman

Roma could force Manchester United to pay over £30 million in order to land Kevin Strootman this summer, according to The Daily Star

The central-midfielder - who is currently on the sidelines with cruciate ligament damage - has been a key member of Louis van Gaal's Dutch squad in recent time. 

Of course injury has ruled the midfielder out of this summer's World Cup, however that hasn't stopped Van Gaal wanting to bring him to Old Trafford. 

Recent reports have suggested that Roma - who ended in second place in the Serie A last season - rejected an initial £25 million offer from United for the player's services. 

And now, it has been suggested that the Italian giants will hold out for over £30m for their midfield man. Manchester United fans will be desperate to see a central-midfielder arrive at the club in the up coming market.

The Red Devils have struggled in the middle of the park in recent time, after Paul Scholes retired - for the second time in 2013 - and the likes of Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley have proved inconsistent throughout the past year. 

Despite Strootman's current problems, it appears that Van Gaal wants him in his ranks at The Theatre of Dreams, and it remains to be seen as to whether the club will stump up the money in order to sign him.
