Manchester United yet to bid for long-term target?

This somewhat slow start to proceedings is worrying some Red Devils fans in the Football Transfer Tavern. These slight concerns are further compounded by news that the club are yet to move for well-known target Kevin Strootman, according to Metro.

It is thought that the former Everton manager is keen to add the PSV Eindhoven midfielder to his squad for the new season but the Dutch international has revealed that there has been no firm interest from Old Trafford.

“There are several clubs interested, but only when they reach an agreement with PSV do I come into the picture,” said the Eredivisie-based man.

“This not to say that any are in the world’s top six. There is also interest from Russia, but that is not an option for me. I just do not take hasty decisions about my future.

“Whether the club I leave for must play in the Champions League? That wasn’t the case when I moved to PSV.”

PSV’s sporting director Marcel Brands previously insisted Strootman, who has also been linked with Roma, will stay at the club for another season after having already lost key men Dries Mertens, Erik Pieters and Jeremain Lens.

“We do not want to lose Strootman this summer. He knows that he will stay at PSV for another season,” he told De Telegraaf.

“We already expected Lens and Pieters would leave, but we didn’t plan the transfer of Mertens.”

Should Manchester United wake up, smell the coffee and attempt to bring Strootman to Old Trafford this summer? Let us know your thoughts below.
