Man United turn to Dutch star as Vidal alternative

Kevin StrootmanThere could finally be some good news for Manchester United fans if the Daily Express is to be believed.

And it seems that despite the Red Devils missing out on Arturo Vidal, they could well be set to land another midfield engine – and a quality one at that.

Louis van Gaal has reportedly tired after chasing Juventus player Vidal – not that we can blame him – and now seems to have moved onto compatriot Kevin Strootman.

The midfielder is just coming back from a serious injury that kept him out of the World Cup, and initially we thought United might wait for some time to see how he recovered.

After seeing their loss to Swansea, not only did the majority of our punters come to the conclusion that United needed more in, well, just about every position on the field, but manger Van Gaal did too – and will move for Strootman because of this.

Manchester Untied fans. What do you need to get into the top four? Will Strootman be someone who can improve the squad, especially in the middle of the park? Let us know your thoughts below.
