The player has also been linked to Chelsea…
Manchester United target Kevin Strootman has given a big hint that he will be staying at AS Roma after the January transfer window. He made his future clearer in a Facebook post.

The Dutch midfielder has been linked to both the Red Devils and more recently Chelsea over the last few months. However, this statement would seem to put the brakes on the rumours linking him with a departure from Serie A.
The 24-year-old speaks of his excitement at facing Feyenoord, a club from his home country of the Netherlands who are managed by his former boss Fred Rutten.
The fixtures against the Eredivisie side are in February, so if he is to play them it must mean that any transfer for the player will not be happening before then in the January transfer window.
The post read, “I’m really looking forward to play the two matches against Feyenoord in February. They are a young and talented team and are playing well. In a difficult group they have managed to qualify as group winners, which sums it all up.
“Nice to see and compete against my former manager Fred Rutten as well, with whom I’ve worked at PSV Eindhoven for almost two years. With the way Feyenoord is playing now, he proves once again to be a great manager,” he continued.
This news will be a disappointment to both Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, who had been hoping to sign him. On the other hand it does mean that a move for Strootman could be possible in the summer.
