Manchester United target Kevin Strootman will wait until the end of the U21 European Championships this summer before making a decision on his future, reports talkSPORT.

The PSV Eindhoven midfielder is currently in Israel with the Holland national team, as speculation continues to swirl about where he'll be plying his trade next season.

Sir Alex Ferguson has held a long-term interest in bringing Strootman to Old Trafford, and is believed to have passed on his recommendation to his successor, David Moyes.

Napoli are also rumoured to be monitoring the Dutchman's situation, though, as Rafa Benitez considers a bid to rival Manchester United ahead of the 2013/14 campaign.

Strootman's agent Chiel Dekker, says that whilst his client is flattered by speculation linking him with a move to Serie 'A', he is undistracted by continuous transfer talk as his focus is on the European Championships.

"No contact with Napoli," Dekker told Radio CRC. "He's flattered but will make a decision on his future after U21 Euros."

After a series of impressive performances for PSV in the Eredivisie, Strootman continues to go from strength to strength, and it will surely only be a matter of time before he leaves the Philips Stadion.
