Manchester United to make offer in January for Serie A star

Manchester United moved up to third in the Premier League last night with a 2-1 over Southampton. Robin van Persie bagged both goals as the Red Devils made it five on the bounce. It wasn’t all plain sailing though, and boss Louis van Gaal revealed after the game that he laid into his team at half time in order to get them to up their game. Whatever he said evidently worked as Van Persie secured al three points. Former Man United defender Gary Neville wasn’t impressed with what he saw, claiming they got away with murder by winning at St Mary’s. Van Gaal wasn't happy with Neville’s comments however and described him as an ‘ex-legend’ who ‘has to pay attention to his words’. Finally it seems as though Kevin Strootman is back on Manchester United’s radar - reports suggest that the Red Devils are putting together a bid ahead of the January window.
