According to the latest transfer rumors, Manchester United are making substantial progressions in their pursuit of Netherlands international Kevin Strootman.
Although Strootman has a contract with Dutch club PSV till 2016, the player's agent has indicated the desire of his client to move to a bigger club and possibly, the illustrious English Premier League in the summer.
"He (Strootman) is focused on England because that would suit his style," Strootman's agent Chiel Dekker said.
The latter further added, "He has the physique, the character and the fitness for it. I am certainly not afraid he could handle that level."
Strootman impressed United's chief scout Jim Lawlor at the recently held U-21 European Championship and the Red Devils are expected to complete the signing of the 23-year-old for a reported sum of £15 million in the next couple of weeks.
Strootman will bring about the much-needed defensive stability to United's midfield and also act as a crucial facilitator to the evergreen Michael Carrick.
