Strootman won't be at Roma for long... he could end up at Manchester United, says Advocaat

Dominant: Dutchman Kevin Strootman could be the man to solve Manchester United's midfield problems
Roma's Kevin Strootman has a future at Manchester United, believes his manager at PSV Eindhoven, Dick Advocaat.

The Holland midfielder was for several months linked with a move to Old Trafford with United keen to strengthen their midfield.

Strootman instead eventually moved from PSV to the Italian capital, however, where he has consistently impressed.

Since the start of the season, with moves for Thiago Alcantara, Cesc Fabregas and Ander Herrera having failed, David Moyes' limited, ageing options have highlighted the need for the manager to strengthen, and Advocaat is of the belief that Strootman could be the answer.

'Strootman is a pure professional,' the Dutch coach told Algemeen Dagblad.
'It frankly surprised me that he did not get to the absolute top last summer and was on the side a little. I do not think he will stay at Roma that long. If Kevin is at this level, he will be plucked away.

'And then it will be a team of the calibre of Manchester United.'

An injury to Michael Carrick, combined with the underwhelming performances of £27.5m signing Marouane Fellaini, has further weakened Moyes' midfield but it remains to be seen if, and how much, he will be willing to spend in the January transfer window.
