Manchester United have been keeping in contact with Kevin Strootman and AS Roma over the summer ahead of a January transfer and are ready to pay a fee in excess of €30million to sign him.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Louis van Gaal is a huge admirer of the Dutchman and is determined to bring him to Old Trafford as soon as possible.

Splashing the cash

The report says the summer of spending at the Red Devils is set to usher in a new era of big transfers for the Premier League giants and they are not afraid to pay big money to get the players they want.

One of these is Strootman and, despite spending the best part of £150million this summer, Manchester United’s moneymen are ready to sanction the fee in excess of €30million that it will take to prise him away from the Serie A side.

Wanted sooner

Van Gaal would have wanted the 24-year-old midfielder this summer but he has been recovering from a serious knee injury and is still recovering, not making an appearance since he picked it up in January.

LVG favourite

It was a cruel blow for Strootman as it meant he missed the World Cup in Brazil and he would almost certainly have been a major part of the Netherlands starting XI, as he was a favourite of manager Van Gaal.

This is why he is expected to be one of the new Manchester United boss’ major targets and the report says his compatriot has been keeping in contact with him for some time to stay in touch with his recovery process.
