With new signing revealing that never made an attempt to sign him, yet another midfielder Manchester were linked with has revealed that the club never actually made an approach to sign him.

midfielder was heavily linked with before signing for Roma last month, with some papers going as far as claiming that a deal had been struck and Strootman would be announced as a United player on July 1st.

The move didn’t materialise and although PSV claimed that Strootman wouldn’t be sold he ended up moving to the Italian capital in a £15m move .

Speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, the captain explained how he ended up at Roma, claiming that he received no concrete offers from anywhere else:

“Did and AC Milan want me? Only Roma came forward seriously for me and I liked their project.

“Rudi Garcia called me and convinced me to make the move, and I’m happy to be here.”
