Netherlands international Kevin Strootman has allegedly agreed on a summer switch to Manchester United, according to a report.

The Roma midfielder had been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford over the summer, but a move never materialized.

However, Dutch journalist Hugo Borst has revealed that the talented midfielder has verbally agreed on the potential transfer to the Red Devils at the end of the season.

"In the spring of 2014 there was a match between PSV and Feyenoord," He said.

"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.

"It won't be in January but it will be next summer. He is an outstanding player."
