Manchester United target Kevin Strootman's agent has come out and quashed all rumours regarding his client's switch to Old Trafford, after denying there was any contact with the Manchester club.

The Dutch midfielder, who is currently recovering from a long-term injury sustained last season, was constantly linked with a move to United, with Louis van Gaal also admitting an interest in signing the player.

Recent reports suggested that the Red Devils boss is preparing a bid for the AS Roma midfielder, who is recovering well from his injury and is in line for a return to action before the winter transfer window.

However, the midfielder's agent Fabio Parisi has revealed that there is no interest from any club and has also dismissed any talk regarding a move to England.

"There is no kind of interest on Strootman. He is recovering from his injury and will be available soon to contribute to Roma's cause," Parisi said, as quoted by the Express.

"For the rest, I say that is just talk and there is nothing, it's all just speculation from England."

United were the highest spenders in England during the transfer window, and were constantly linked to players all through the summer.

Juventus midfielder Arturo Vidal was touted to be van Gaal's primary midfield target, but a move failed to materialise after the player himself confirmed his desire to remain with the Serie A champions for at least one more season.

In hindsight it might be looked upon as a blessing in disguise by the United hierarchy as recent reports claim the Chilean midfielder has suffered a recurrence of his knee injury during international duty and may have to go under the knife to rectify the long standing problem.
