Transfer Run-Down: United Keen On Strootman, Tottenham Look To Roma For Swap Deal
Posted on November 7, 2013
As a deal for Juve’s Arturo Vidal grows more and more unlikely, Manchester United are stepping up their interest in Roma midfielder Kevin Strootman.
Strootman, only 24, is currently recovering from a serious knee injury, but is highly regarded by United manager Louis Van Gaal and could see out his knee rehabilitation in Manchester.
Roma’s Mehdi Benatia, 27 and widely regarded as a world class centre-back, is also being targeted by the Red Devils, though no legitimate offers have yet to be made.
Tottenham have offered Roberto Soldado in a swap deal for Mattia Destro but Roma remain unconvinced by the Spanish striker following an extremely disappointing first year with Spurs.
Liverpool, amongst other teams, have enquired about taking Arsenal Starlet and Costa Rican star Joel Campbell on a short-term loan, an enquiry that Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger rebuffed in order to keep Joel Campbell at Arsenal for the start of the season.
Monaco striker Radamel Falcao is open to joining Liverpool on loan but only if the Anfield club are willing to meet the Colombian’s £200,000-a-week wage demands.
The French club reportedly expect Falcao to join Real Madrid permanently next summer but will consider loaning him out to another club at this time.Arsenal and Tottenham are on alert after Shaktar Donetsk revealed plans to try and send Bernard out on loan this season.
The Brazilian want out of Ukraine, but his club refuse to sell at a loss for the time being.
Manchester United are closing in on a deal for Argentine defender Marcos Rojo but Sporting Lisbon want Nani or Anderson on loan as part of the deal.
