Manchester United assistant boss Rene Meulensteen has claimed that he "could not think of a more ideal player for our team" than Wesley Sneijder.

The Dutchman has previously expressed a liking for United, yet obstacles remain to the possibility of a deal, including the 27-year-old's likely wage demands and uncertainty surrounding Inter's willingness to sell a player who still has four years remaining on his contract.

Meulensteen told Dutch magazine Voetbal International: "The new Paul Scholes doesn't exist, just as a new Roy Keane has never emerged, but Sneijder would fit perfectly here, I cannot actually think of a more ideal player for our team."

He added: "I say this not because he's a Dutchman. I've worked here for a while, I know the team inside out and I know he would be a great signing.


 

"He seems a perfect complement to the likes of (Javier) Hernandez, (Wayne) Rooney, Park (Ji-sung), (Ashley) Young, (Antonio) Valencia, Nani and (Ryan) Giggs.

"And, of course, Wesley has the necessary experience in top-level football.

"I don't know what his future is at Inter, whether he may leave or whether he's affordable.

"But, purely based on football skills, I say get Sneijder."
