Roma president emphasizes again: Kevin Strootman will not to go Manchester United

Roma president James Pallotta appeared on Roma Radio this afternoon and was asked about the team and emphasized that midfielder Kevin Strootman will not be sold to Manchester United:

“The stadium? I’ve always talked about a 5 year project, in the long term because this is also a part of the stadium. We changed many things like with Rudi, Sabatini and Massara, I expect to get into the Champions League and I believe we will again. We would be first in the league if it wasn’t for small things like the injuries of Castan and Strootman – who I should remind everyone will not be going to Manchester United. I think the rest of the team and players will continue to fight for the Scudetto and the Champions League for many years.”
