Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is planning a bid for PSV Eindhoven midfielder Kevin Strootman. The Daily Record says Ferguson is weighing up a £14million move for Dutch midfield enforcer Strootman.

Fergie has kept tabs on the PSV Eindhoven star, with Darren Fletcher's long-term Manchester United future still unclear.

Strootman, in the Holland squad preparing to face Denmark later this afternoon, is also facing uncertainty following Mark van Bommel's return to PSV.

That could clear the way for United to swoop for the 22-year-old, whose combative style been compared to Roy Keane's.
