Manchester United transfer news: €25m bid for Dutch midfielder rejected and Kroos is on Juventus’ radar

Manchester United had a €25 million bid for Kevin Strootman rejected in January according to reports. We missed the boat with Strootman in the summer when he was available from PSV and since then, he has gone on to be one of the best midfielders in Serie A this season. Opportunity lost. (The Mirror)

Wesley Sneijder has revealed that United tried to sign him in the January transfer windw. The 29-year-old insisted he never thought of taking the move because of unfinished business with Galatasaray. (Turkish Football)

Juventus have joined the race for Bayern Munich’s Toni Kroos and their interest would certainly make it more difficult for Manchester United to land a deal. However, seeing as they already have the likes of Pirlo, Pogba, Vidal and Marchisio in their central midfield, would they really need Kroos? (The Mirror)

In the summer United will put in a £20 million bid for Southampton’s Luke Shaw in line with him becoming Patrice Evra’s long-term replacement. (Goal)

Federico Macheda is out of contract with United in three months but has intimated there isn’t much chance he will sign a new contract extension. (Daily Star)
