Van Gaal still keen on Strootman


Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal has refused to comment on wether he will make a bid for Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.

Van Gaal coached Strootman during his spell as Netherlands coach and would have selected the player to feature during the World Cup this summer. 

However, Strootman was unavailible for selection after suffering a serious injury which has meant that he is still currently unable to play. 

But, ahead of United’s friendly with Roma in the United States, van Gaal, who has been linked with a number of high-profile midfielders, would not rule out moving for the player in the future. 

He said: “I never say anything about individual players – it’s my vision that we have to be about the team and not individual players.

“Other players, not at Manchester United, I can’t judge – I am not there. Strootman I can judge, but he has been injured for more than six months.

“We have to wait and see how he comes back. It’s not so easy to come back out of an injury, so we’ll wait and see.”
