Manchester United make £30m+ offer for Kevin Strootman

Manchester United have already offered Roma in excess of £30million to convince them to sell one of the top targets for potential new boss Louis van Gaal, according to sources in Italy.

Il Tempo claims that the Red Devils have put forward a proposal for Kevin Strootman which could rise to as much as £40million when the exchange rates and bonuses are added on - more than double what Roma paid for him last year when they signed him from PSV. The 24-year-old is said to rank amongst the most desired players by Van Gaal, and his new club are determined to capture him either before or after his World Cup participation with Holland.

Though Strootman has enjoyed an impressive campaign with his current side, and one which saw them finish second in the Serie A, it’s thought that they may be inclined to part ways with the midfielder in order to raise funds for purchases of their own.

United fans will be hopeful that a deal for the Dutchman can be done sooner rather than later, as the memories of last summer’s transfer failings are still unforgettably fresh. Meanwhile, if Van Gaal’s influence can engineer the capture of a top talent prior to him even beginning his first-team duties, he’ll be welcomed with open arms by the Old Trafford faithful.
