Roma announced Thursday that Strootman underwent knee surgery in the Netherlands on Wednesday, with Strootman tweeting that he will be out for a couple weeks.

Strootman has been heavily linked to a move to Manchester United this season, but the knee surgery will all but remove that possibility. It's been an injury-plagued season for the Dutchman, who has no goals and two assists in only six Serie A appearances.

Strootman suffered a torn ACL during Sunday's Serie A match against Napoli and he will miss the rest of the season, reports. Additionally, he has been ruled out for this summer's World Cup.

This is a huge blow for Roma, who went from a crowded midfield to one that's searching for answers, after Strootman's injury and the January sale of Michael Bradley to Toronto FC of Major League Soccer.

Strootman was taken off in the 13th minute of AS Roma's Serie A match against Napoli on Sunday and there are fears he could have suffered ligament damage in his knee, according to Football Italia.

Strootman had to be stretchered off the pitch, and the Roma medical staff confirmed after the game that he at least suffered a sprained left knee. He was seen leaving Stadio San Paolo using crutches, and is scheduled to have more tests Monday. It would be a huge blow for Roma, who previously had enough midfield depth to send Michael Bradley to Toronto FC of Major League Soccer. After the loss, Roma is now 12 points behind leaders Juventus, with a game in hand, and are only three points ahead of Napoli.
