Louis van Gaal will bring Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman to Manchester United, according to a Dutch football expert.

The Red Devils were linked with a move for the 24-year-old during the summer transfer window but a move to Old Trafford failed to materialise.

However, according to recent reports, Van Gaal is still interested in the Roma talisman, who missed this summer’s World Cup due to a knee injury.

And Dutch football expert Marcel van der Kraan believes Strootman will end up at the 20-time English champions in the near future once fully recovered from his setback.

“If he was fit Van Gaal would have bought him. But at the moment he would never pass a medical at Manchester United,” Van der Kraan told talkSPORT.

“But we are convinced he will take him and he will be approached [in January]. Interestingly, he has just changed his agent and gone with the same one as Robin van Persie.”
