AS Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman a £25m January target for Manchester United
New manager Louis van Gaal has clearly taken to spending huge amounts on transfer fees as the Dutchman targets fellow countryman Strootman, according to the Daily Mail.
The 63-year-old sanctioned £151.5m of purchases this summer, including a British record £59.7m being paid to Real Madrid for Angel di Maria.
However, van Gaal is a big fan of Strootman’s and sees the 24-year-old as the ideal box-to-box acquisition that United needs.
