Van Gaal wants to set up Man Utd deal for Strootman

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is determined to prise Kevin Strootman away from AS Roma. The Mirror says Van Gaal is putting a deal in place to land Strootman in January.

Strootman, 24, is back in training after missing out on his nation's third-place finish in Brazil with a cruciate injury. But he is not expected to play until the Autumn.

United will make their move in January - which is why the loss of Michael Carrick for the first two months of the season with an ankle injury has come as such a huge blow for Van Gaal.

Strootman only moved to Roma 12 months ago from PSV Eindhoven.
