Roma’s sporting director Walter Sabatini has insisted that Kevin Strootman will not be sold in January.

The Dutch international is still recovering from an anterior cruciate ligament injury he sustained against Napoli in March, but so exceptional were his performances for Roma last season that clubs remain interested.

When asked about the players future, Roma manager Rudi Garcia said that reporters should speak with [his] president”

However in the wake of the media reaction this caused, Sabatini was forced to comment on the rumours himself.

“I have found that all the lavish things that are coming out are stories that are all from England. There is no issues with Strootman… he will return soon and he is not on the market.”

Manchester United were said to be chasing Strootman, who was a key player for Louis Van Gaal’s Netherlands team  in their World Cup qualifying campaign.

Roma hope to have the powerful midfielder back and fit in time for their second Champions League tie with Manchester City on the 10th of December.
