Mauro Baldissoni: Strootman is not for sale

Roma general manager Mauro Baldissoni spoke to Sky Sports regarding Kevin Strootman:

“I read every day something about Kevin Strootman to Manchester United and it’s not something I like, neither does our president. Pallotta has released a statement a few days ago saying that Kevin is not for sale. We haven’t received offers from Manchester and it is not our intention to sell him because he’s a young player and has a long contract that connects us. Roma want to build the team around him.”
