Kevin Strootman's agent has revealed that the Manchester United transfer target is not considering a move in the January transfer window.

As reported by the Daily Mail, the Dutch international has been a £20m target for the Old Trafford club, with Louis van Gaal a huge fan of the central midfielder from his days working with Stootman with the Dutch national team.

Manchester United have reportedly been waiting until Strootman returned from a serious knee injury, which he has recently done.

The 24-year-old is completely focussed on getting back to full fitness with Roma after suffering a cruciate ligament injury.

His agent, Fabio Parisi, told Calcio Mercato: "The healing of Kevin is good for him and for the team because they end up back with a great player.

Forget Man United

"Now Kevin only has to stay focused to gain confidence and put minutes in the legs. The future at Manchester United? Forget the rumours. We just think to 100 per cent recover his condition."

Many believe Strootman would be the ideal signing for United in the January transfer window. Despite the addition of Daley Blind from Ajax and Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao, the Old Trafford giants are still lacking a dynamic box-to-box presence in central midfield.

Strootman's return

Strootman, when fit, has been brilliant and was even made Dutch captain temporarily under van Gaal. He returned to the Roma lineup last weekend and helped the Rome club to a 3-0 victory over league rivals Torino.

United are expected to be very active in the January transfer window as they currently sit seventh in the Premier League table even after a heavy outlay over the summer.

Herrera, Blind and Angel Di Maria have quickly settled into the United midfield but the squad still has serious shortcomings in defence. Marcos Rojo, the key summer signing, is currently out injured with a dislocated shoulder.
