Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has refused to rule out making a bid for Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.
Van Gaal coached Strootman in his role as Netherlands boss and would have taken him to the World Cup but for a cruciate ligament injury suffered in March.
But ahead of United’s friendly with Roma in the United States van Gaal would not rule out moving for the player in the future.
As quoted on the Sky Sports website, he said: “I never say anything about individual players, it’s my vision that we have to be about the team and not individual players.
“Other players, not at Manchester United, I can’t judge, i am not there. Strootman I can judge, but he has been injured for more than six months.
“We have to wait and see how he comes back. It’s not so easy to come back out of an injury, so we’ll wait and see.”
