The Netherlands international has been one of United’s top targets for some time now, and despite talk that he could move as early as this January, it seems that he will be on his way to Old Trafford for the start of next season.
Trusted Dutch journalist Hugo Borst lifted the lid on this agreement, saying: “In the spring of 2014 there was a match between PSV and Feyenoord. Robin van Persie was in the stands, along with Louis van Gaal. On the other side was Kevin Strootman. The pair chatted, this was when people knew Van Gaal was going to Manchester United.
“Van Gaal asked Strootman whether he was interested in playing for Manchester United, and he said he was very willing. They have shaken hands on the deal.
“It won’t be in January but it will be next summer. He is an outstanding player.”
