Kevin-Strootman-Manchester-United-2012

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Edwin Van Der Sar believes a swoop for countryman Kevin Strootman would be a good bit of business for his old club.

Strootman has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford by the papers, and with uncertainty surrounding the future of Paul Scholes as well as Darren Fletcher and the capacity in which he will operate when he returns from his bowel condition, there may be space for new faces in the United midfield.

It’s widely believed that Strootman can add some mettle to the United midfield and Van Der Sar is backing a move for the PSV captain as he told Sport360°:

“I’m not into speculation. I still read the English papers so I see a lot of names. If you are not working inside the club then you never know.

“But [Strootman] would be a good signing and there is a history [of Dutch players at United] like myself, Ruud Van Nistelrooy, Jaap Stam, Robin [Van Persie] now, so maybe there will be another.”
