The 22-year-old has been linked with a January transfer to Manchester United, amid rumours that Sir Alex Ferguson has been tracking the youngster as potential replacement for the 37-year-old Paul Scholes.
However, whilst Strootman voiced his interest in a move away, he dismissed January as a potential time-frame.
“We are only in October,” observed his agent, Chiel Dekker.
“The only thing I can tell you is to call me back in April or May."
The Netherlands international transferred to Eindhoven in 2011 from Utrecht and has only just made his break into the Dutch national side in which he has made 11 senior appearances.
But big things are expected of the young man and a move abroad to one of the continent’s elite is likely on the horizon.
Italian giants AC Milan are also thought to be interested in the player. But, as of yet it is understood his club has yet to receive a formal offer for the midfielder.
“We all know that in football everything is possible,” Dekker continued, in what appeared to be a somewhat vague answer to questions about his client’s future.
“But at the moment it is useless to talk about the market," he added.
His non-committal response may only intensify speculation that the player’s days at PSV are numbered. However, hopes that he will join United in January appear to be wide of the mark.
What the player’s agent might as well have said is,
“Watch this space.”
