Strootman and not Fabregas!

Strootman and not Fabregas!

Transfer speculation linking Manchester United with a move for the Barcelona midfield star, Cesc Fabregas, appears to be misplaced.

The tabloid press, this morning, carry the insinuation that Louis van Gaal has instructed the United board that the former Arsenal player is not on his agenda.

In fact it is being bandied about that van Gaal has set his sights on 24 year-old Kevin Strootman as the player he wants to become his next midfield general.

However, the fact that Strootman has been sidelined with a serious knee injury since March and, due to this injury, is not in contention for the Dutch World Cup squad this summer, may complicate matters.

Strootman only joined AS Roma from PSV Eindhoven last summer, for £15 million, with it being mentioned that United will attempt to bring the player to Old Trafford by opening the bidding at something close to £20 million.

A transfer to keep an eye on we reckon!

I'm calling bull! Strootman is out injured having done in his Anterior Cruciate Ligament, having been stung on injury prone players in the past whom never recovered I can't imagine the club being all too willing to fork out 20-30 mil. Give it a year, see how he recovers and whether he's showing the same level of performances and then based on that decide whether to bid, to go in now would be madness.

Utter madness admittedly doing in your cruciate isn't the career ender it used to be but give him chance to get playing again. He may never get back to the standard he was. With injuries like that it's not just a physical problem it can be a mental problem too for fear of doing more damage.
