Blues join chase for long-term United target.
Chelsea are reportedly ready to join Manchester United in the chase to sign AS Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman this January, according to Fichajes.net.
The Netherlands international has become regarded as one of Europe’s top midfield playmakers in recent times, having shone with Roma since his move to the club last season.
United are known to be big fans of the 24-year-old, but Chelsea could also be interested in adding him to their midfield options this season.
Jose Mourinho’s side have also been linked with the likes of Sami Khedira and William Carvalho, but could look to Strootman as an alternative after Roma’s early Champions League exit.
