Manchester United squad is already lacking quality in several departments and now the injury concerns have further ruined the situation.
Without doubt, Red Devils need top class players in the winter transfer window as well to ensure that they qualify for Champions League next season.
For now, United have 8 points in 6 games and only premier league to mainly focus on. Anything below top 4 will be considered as a massive failure, especially after spending that huge.
Once again, midfield is in the limelight and Van Gaal is after his favorite star Kevin Strootman to lure him in January.
According to reports, Roma chief has conceded that Strootman situation is out of hands and that is a major boost for the Red Devils.
“Is Strootman for sale? You’ll have to ask our president.”
Manchester United can now close in to seal the midfield signing of Kevin Strootman from the Serie A side who is rated around 30 million pounds.
The former PSV Eindhoven star is still recovering from his injury suffered back in March and fitness will be very significant if United are to really sign him.
With Herrera and Carrick out injured, the midfield is in deep trouble at the moment and United fans hope that come January, they are in decent position to sign top players and earn top 4.
