Strootman for £32m? Take it from someone who has never watched him play, that’s a steal.

Does anyone believe we WON’T land Strootman in January? Pretty much a foregone conclusion, no?

Instead of Bale, we could sign Hummels, Strootman and hand an empty check to De Gea.

Strootman will make me happy but not at the expense of Carrick not playing/ playing out of position.

Signing Strootman is a certainty! Whether is January or Summer. It shows how highly LvG rates him when he changed his formation in WC.

Strootman is the new Sneijder saga.

I can see Van Gaal getting angry with the press if they ask him about Strootman
