MANCHESTER UNITED and Everton have been offered the chance to sign Kevin Strootman on loan, according to reports. The Dutch midfielder, 29, quit Roma to join Marseille last year as they looked to challenge Paris Saint-Germain’s Ligue 1 dominance. Marseille are looking to offload Kevin Strootman However, after a poor campaign, Marseille are sixth in the league with a game left and need to trim the squad. Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol tweeted: “ Everton and Manchester United offered chance to sign Marseille/Holland midfielder Kevin Strootman on loan. “Marseille signed him from Roma for £23m last summer. Marseille need to cut costs after a disappointing season.” While at PSV Eindhoven, the 42-cap Holland international was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford when David Moyes and Louis van Gaal were in charge. But a transfer never happened and he joined Roma in 2013, but struggled with injuries during his time in Italy. United were once again strongly tipped to snap him up but balked at the £80MILLION price tag then-Roma boss Rudi Garcia slapped on him. Strootman has started 20 games and come off the bench seven times this season for Marseille, who are now managed by Garcia.

Ryan Giggs helped advise Ole Gunnar Solskjaer on Manchester United’s rumoured summer move for Swansea star Daniel James, reports claim. Solskjaer allegedly sought out the opinion of his former Old Trafford team-mate, who is James’ manager at international level with Wales. Solskjaer is claimed to have spoken with Ryan Giggs about Daniel James United are negotiating a deal with Swansea over a fee for the winger, who is expected become Solskjaer’s first summer signing at a cost of around £15million. James has enjoyed an excellent season at the Liberty Stadium and caught the eye of a wider audience with a stunning performance in Swansea’s FA Cup quarter-final defeat by Manchester City. The 21-year-old has just a season left on his contract with the Championship club, and looked set to leave for Leeds United in January only for the move to collapse at the eleventh hour. [article-rail-section title=”LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS” posts_category=”221″ posts_number=”8″ query_type=”recent” /] The Yorkshire-born attacker made his debut for Wales last November, with Old Trafford legend Giggs handing him his first cap. He scored his first goal for his country on his second appearance, netting the only strike of the game in a March defeat of Slovakia, and Giggs spoke highly of the youngster in the wake of the match. He continued to praise James when approached by Solskjaer, The Mirror claim, with Giggs allegedly telling his former team-mate he has ‘no doubt’ James has the talent to make it as a Manchester United player. James is reportedly close to joining Man United in a £15million deal Giggs is claimed to have highlighted James’ off the ball work-rate as one of his biggest strengths. United have not been alone in chasing James, with new Brighton manager Graham Potter, who managed Swansea last season, said to be keen on reuniting with his former winger at the Amex.

MANCHESTER UNITED are assembling a committee of three ex-players to help identify transfer targets. The idea has been discussed at Carrington, with former title-winner Darren Fletcher present at the meeting. Rio Ferdinand has been approached to be part of a new Man Utd transfer committee Darren Fletcher released by Stoke could play a part in Man Utd recruitment Fletcher, 35, is expected to head up a team who will be charged with finding players to fit the United DNA. Rio Ferdinand, 40, is another former United star who has been approached about taking a position on the team. Liverpool have already successfully gone down this route with boss Jurgen Klopp working in tandem with sporting director Michael Edwards, head of scouting and recruitment Dave Fallows and goalkeeping coach John Achteberg. United want to get away from the big-spending scattergun approach on stellar names that has clearly failed under three managers in the six years since Sir Alex Ferguson retired. Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is now left with players on huge wages who are no longer wanted by the club but cannot be shifted. United cannot find a taker for Alexis Sanchez, who is on £505,000 a week. And £89million record buy Paul Pogba has also been a big disappointment since returning to the club from Juventus three years ago. Instead, United are now seeking young hard-working and hungry players who are determined to make their names at Old Trafford. CHANGE OF TRANSFER POLICY Swansea winger Daniel James, 21, fits that bill and is close to a £15m switch. Academy chief Nicky Butt was also involved in the meeting at Carrington and the former United midfielder, 44, is already having a big say in which young players are ready to step up from the youth ranks. United yesterday axed reserve team boss Ricky Sbragia, 62, and Butt will oversee changes that could lead to another former midfielder Quinton Fortune take up a coaching role at Old Trafford. Butt will also get a much bigger budget to start scouting the best young stars around the globe. In describing the type of player he wants, Solskjaer said recently: “You have to have a certain kind of attitude about you to make you a Manchester United player. Our fans want to see exciting players, it’s always been in our culture.

STEVE McCLAREN is thankful to this day that Sir Alex Ferguson ignored his advice. Twenty years on, Manchester United’s stars recall fondly the events from the incredible night that sealed a historic Treble in 1999. United lifted the Champions League trophy to complete the unprecedented Treble in 1999 After Teddy Sheringham’s 91st-minute goal made it 1-1 in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in the Nou Camp, Fergie’s assistant McClaren recommended caution. But with extra-time moments away, the boss put McClaren in his place before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sealed a 93rd-minute win on May 26. McClaren said: “We had four attackers on. Once we scored I said to the gaffer, ‘Are we going to put ourselves into a more balanced shape? Let’s regroup, think about extra-time.’ “He just said, ‘sit down Stevie, sit down — this game isn’t over yet’. “That’s what he had, that perception and feeling he knew what was going to happen.” [quote credit=”Steve McClaren on Sir Alex Ferguson”]That’s what he had, that perception and feeling he knew what was going to happen[/quote] Sealing the Treble completed a magical 10 days for United, wrapping up the league on the final day against Tottenham before beating Newcastle 2-0 in the FA Cup final. Striker Sheringham was man of the match at Wembley having scored after coming off the bench early for an injured Roy Keane. But despite the heroics, he was benched for the European showpiece in Barcelona. He said: “I thought, OK, maybe I’ve still got a part to play, that I must stay focused. “Losing 1-0 at half-time, as Sir Alex finished his speech he said I’d be going on if it stays like it is the next 15 minutes. “So I’m asking myself if I want us to score. If we do I might not get on. “I was a pro footballer and wanted to be involved in the biggest moments. I didn’t want to watch.

STEVE McCLAREN is thankful to this day that Sir Alex Ferguson ignored his advice. Twenty years on, Manchester United’s stars recall fondly the events from the incredible night that sealed a historic Treble in 1999. United lifted the Champions League trophy to complete the unprecedented Treble in 1999 After Teddy Sheringham’s 91st-minute goal made it 1-1 in the Champions League final against Bayern Munich in the Nou Camp, Fergie’s assistant McClaren recommended caution. But with extra-time moments away, the boss put McClaren in his place before Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sealed a 93rd-minute win on May 26. McClaren said: “We had four attackers on. Once we scored I said to the gaffer, ‘Are we going to put ourselves into a more balanced shape? Let’s regroup, think about extra-time.’ “He just said, ‘sit down Stevie, sit down — this game isn’t over yet’. “That’s what he had, that perception and feeling he knew what was going to happen.” [quote credit=”Steve McClaren on Sir Alex Ferguson”]That’s what he had, that perception and feeling he knew what was going to happen[/quote] Sealing the Treble completed a magical 10 days for United, wrapping up the league on the final day against Tottenham before beating Newcastle 2-0 in the FA Cup final.
