Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal admits interest in Roma’s Kevin Strootman: ‘Let’s wait and see’

Louis van Gaal broke with his usual protocol at his Saturday morning press conference to admit an interest in signing Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.

Strootman, who Van Gaal knows well from their time together with the Holland national team, says that no bid can be made just now, due to Strootman’s long injury lay-off, but that he’ll ‘wait and see’.

Van Gaal told the pres pack:

I never usually say anything about individual players. It is my vision that we talk about a team and not individual players.

But Strootman I can judge.

He is injured for more than six months. We have to wait and see how he comes back.

It is not easy to say how he comes back from injury, but we will wait and see.’

Roma manager Rudi Garcia said categorically on Friday that Strootman won’t be leaving, but it seems he hasn’t accounted for Van Gaal’s pulling power…
