United move for £35m playmaker 'still possible'

Published Add your comment

Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen still believes Wesley Sneijder could come to Manchester United this week, despite the Inter Milan playmaker insisting he’s staying in Italy.

"Sir Alex Ferguson has tremendous confidence in our current squad, but a player the calibre of Wesley Sneijder could well suit us,” Meulensteen told Dutch magazine Voetbal International.

“Where there is a will, there’s always a way. As club and player really want it, there is always something possible.


“I do not see why an older player like Sneijder would not fit into our team.”

Sneijder has continually been connected to a move to Manchester United, despite continual denials from the player and club. Inter Milan have admitted that should United make the right off, they will consider selling Sneijder, though with just three days left in the transfer the Dutchman has admitted he may not have time to do a deal for a move.

“I don't think I'll leave at this moment of market," Sneijder said.

"Manchester United? Anything is possible in football, but I don't think this time something will happen.

"I know that if I were to leave it would have be for the right price, Inter was clear about that. But I have not spoken formally with the two Manchester clubs."

But as Sneijder says, anything can happen on deadline day, and should Ferguson decide to bolster his midfield he will certainly have the spending power to bring the £35 million rated Sneijder to Manchester United, the Daily Mail claims.
