The Netherlands international has been linked with a January move to Old Trafford, and his representative has revealed the midfielder is targeting a move to England next summer.
Kevin Strootman is nearing a big move to English football giants Manchester United. The Netherlands international’s agent has revealed that Manchester United have officially approached the player with a transfer proposal.
The 22-year-old midfielder has been on Manchester United’s wish-list for a while now. Manchester Untied manager Sir Alex Ferguson is apparently a big fan of the Dutchman which is why he has called upon him to join his force at Old Trafford.
The agent further revealed that Kevin Strootman was planning a summer move to England. He admitted there was a long list of clubs interested in signing him in, but Kevin Strootman was eyeing a move to England at the end of the season.
The PSV midfielder was available in the market last summer. The versatile midfielder has attracted a lot of attention in the transfer market. Manchester Untied are expected to battle with a long list of clubs in order to win his services.
Sir Alex Ferguson is keen on bolstering his midfield options this fall, which is why the Scotsman would love to have Kevin Strootman by side. However, Kevin Strootman has pledged his loyalty to PSV for the season, therefore Sir Alex Ferguson will have to wait six more months before signing him in.
In an interview to talkSPORT Kevin Strootman’s agent Chiel Dekker confirmed his client would move to England next summer.
“All the top clubs in Europe know about Kevin, but a move to England next summer is his first priority and, yes, Manchester United and other big clubs in Europe have been in touch with me,” Chiel Dekker said.
Sir Alex Ferguson has been in search for a versatile center midfielder for a very long time. Kevin Strootman will fit the bill perfectly for Manchester United. The Dutchman can play as a midfield enforcer, center midfielder, defensive and attacking midfielder and even as a center back.
Kevin Strootman has appeared in 20 games for PSV this season in which he has scored six goals and provided three assists.
Rife rumors suggest Manchester United are £20 million bid for Kevin Strootman, but that price will increase if other clubs arrive with interest in the youngster.
