As noted by Pete O'Rourke of Sky Sports, Chiel Dekker has confirmed his client's plans on staying in the Italian capital for some time:
"Kevin is very happy in Rome and his intention is to stay here for a long time. They have started a project and a new team and he has adapted well to his new club."
United, which were previously linked with the Dutch international during the summer, were rumoured to have reignited their interest in the impressive 23-year-old, per Steve Bates of Mirror Football.
The former PSV Eindhoven midfielder headed to Serie A during the previous transfer window, where he has quickly become an important part of Rudi Garcia's plans.
Strootman is a hard-working defensive midfielder, the kind of talent United absolutely need. Gifted with a well-rounded game, the experienced player is capable of tackling ferociously, playing key passes and dominating in the air.
With three goals and five assists in 14 Serie A appearances, Strootman hasn't taken long to impose himself on the league.
Do Manchester United stand any chance of signing Kevin Strootman in January?
David Moyes' failure to capture the player underlined a summer of transfer disappointments for the Red Devils, which only managed to bring in Marouane Fellaini for £27.5 million.
The Belgian is yet to make a positive impression at Old Trafford and is a constant reminder that the likes of Cesc Fabregas, Ander Herrera and Sami Khedira could have joined Strootman at the club, per ESPN.
While United fans would understandably have little hope of signing Strootman so soon after he joined Roma, Dekker's comments arrive before the rumour can progress into false hope, a feeling that crippled Moyes' opening transfer window as boss.
