It woudn’t be a Manchester United transfer window without Wesley Sneijder being linked and courtesy of The Guardian, the rumours have started earlier than usual.
The 29-year-old has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in every transfer window for the past few years because of how perfect on paper he is for United’s team – nothing has changed in that respect.
Still as talented as he ever was, Sneijder’s ability from central midfield would fill a gaping hole at Old Trafford that has become even more so glaringly obvious in the absence of Michael Carrick who does a good job covering over the cracks.
In the summer, Galatasaray claimed that they had rejected an ‘indirect offer’ for the playmaker from United and it looks like we might be in for the next episode of the Sneijder saga this winter.
One reason that it could have legs is that Sneijder has recently split with his agent Soren Lerby which is a change that at least indicates something is happening with him and David Moyes would he hard struck to find a better, available, established world class midfielder than Sneijder.
His transfer fee would not be an issue but he would command a very high wage which could be the stumbling block but if Moyes is serious about bringing in some real quality to the side, then Sneijder ticks the boxes like he has done for years.
