PSV Eindhoven manager Dick Advocaat has publicly urged his player Kevin Strootman that it will be better for him to leave the club, despite hoping that the player opts to stay.
However, it is widely understood that the player wishes to leave the Dutch club and it has been revealed that ‘he is willing to listen to offers’.
Advocaat, who began his job of managing PSV at the beginning of the season, told De Telegraaf that it will be better for Strootman to leave.
“For PSV it would be good if he stays, but for Strootman himself it’s better to leave,” he said.
“He’s the reserve captain of the Dutch national squad. He fits everywhere. He’s a fantastic player because he knows exactly what his qualities are.
“He would be good for Liverpool and Tottenham, but I think he’s also good enough for Manchester City and Manchester United. He’s a very useful player for every team. Especially when he’s surrounded by better players.”
Strootman has caught interest from Manchester United, and it was rumoured that their boss Sir Alex Ferguson really wanted to sign the player, but with David Moyes in power over the summer, nothing can be predicted.
