Manchester United are preparing to continue their spending spree in the January transfer window, and have made Dutch midfielder Kevin Strootman their number one target.
Not content with having already spent £150m this summer, United boss Louis van Gaal is targeting further signings to strengthen his team, including a £25m deal for the Roma playmaker.
According to the Daily Mail, United are prepared to do whatever it takes to secure an instant return to Champions League football, and will add further marquee signings to those of Angel di Maria and Radamel Falcao.
There are concerns that Van Gaal’s squad still needs strengthening in defence and midfield, and a player that he has already managed an international level is viewed as the ideal solution to the latter of those issues, with the 24-year-old having now recovered from a recent knee injury that ruled him out of much of last season.
The source believes that United will not stop there as Van Gaal sets about reviving the fallen giants of English football after a spectacular summer of spending, with senior officials at the club promising more to come.
