Man United have been linked with a move for PSV Eindhoven midfielder Kevin Strootman for about a year, such is the impact he has made since his move to the Philips Stadion from Utrecht. It appears that the 22 year old is looking to leave the Eredivisie in order to continue his career progression and Sir Alex Ferguson may well fancy his chances of beating fellow prospective buyers AC Milan and Zenit.
Strootman has been dubbed the ‘Dutch Roy Keane‘ and could be just the type of young talent Ferguson has been looking for in order to beef up his midfield options.
Given that Paul Scholes is nearing the end of his career and Michael Carrick is perhaps not as effective as in his pomp. Darren Fletcher is recovering from illness and Sir Alex Ferguson may have ran out of patience with Anderson after a lengthy period of average form. Tom Cleverley has matured but Kevin Strootman offers a different set of attributes that the Man United boss may well feel he needs in his squad.
Man United have lacked an out and out defensive midfielder ever since Owen Hargreaves career started to become riddled with injury. Strootman is a box to box performer who is tough in the tackle but also able to push the play forward.
The rangy midfielder may well feel it’s time to move to a ‘bigger’ club and would surely be tempted by a move to Old Trafford.
