Despite being a cert to join Manchester United, it’s being reported that PSV’s Kevin Strootman has joined Roma.

PSV had said that the midfielder wasn’t for sale, preferring to keep him for one more year having sold a number of stars already this summer but Strootman claimed a move away from the Philips Stadion was still possible although it appeared that he was lowering his expectations as he mentioned that he could possibly join a team that wasn’t in the upper echelons of European football.

Rumours of a move to Roma began to surface and have today proved correct as the Italian side have signed the midfielder for £15.5m on a 4 year deal.

This comes as a huge turnaround from claims that a deal had been wrapped up and the Dutch man would be confirmed on July 1st when Moyes officially became United manager.

Judging by this, I don’t think United’s interest in him was ever as serious as made out and perhaps it’s for the best as he hardly looked impressive when I saw him, especially during the European u21 championship where as a senior player dropping down into the team he should have stood out more.
