Manchester United already have their eyes set on more spending in the winter transfer window even after splashing heavy cash in summer.
Louis van Gaal is delighted with his new signings but clearly wanted more strength in the midfield and defense department.
For midfield, his priority target was none other than his compatriot Kevin Strootman of Roma. However, his long term injury that also prevented the former PSV star from playing in the World Cup meant that United pulled back for the time being.
Strootman is expected to return to full fitness next month, hope that remains come January transfer window and that is when Manchester United want him at Old Trafford.
Express believes that the Red Devils can lure him for a huge price tag of £40 million but Mirror suggests that the fee is likely to be £25 million.
It will be fair to say that the Dutch international is edging closer to Manchester United move, set to happen in winter as both Van Gaal and Strootman are making efforts for its completion.
As per the provided Daily Mirror link.
“ Strootman, 24, has ditched his agent Chiel Dekker and has joined SEG – the Sports Entertainment Group – who were involved in Robin van Persie’s move from Arsenal to United.”
On the other hand, United have ensured Van Gaal that funds will be there in the winter transfer window for him to reinforce the squad.

bring Strootman to partner Herera and Blind.
there is no doubt buyin a world class midfielder of strootman will give man united more attacking option.
Good for Kelvin but please dont sell Juan Mata.
That is acceptable but please dont sell Mata
Kagawa is gone and Mata is following? What happens to the #10 position if Rooney gets injured? Please reconsider the decision.
For the time being Rooney can play the #8 for Mata to play #10. The two can join hands in the middle to feed the striker with accurate passes.
For now, I prefered mata to rooney. Why selling mata now dat kagawa has gone back to dortmond?
Kevin is stronger than Mata. Man U squad need a physical strength in the attacking midfield.Mata like Kagawa lack physical ability.
