Published Add your comment

Manchester United midfield target Wesley Sneijder is willing to take a pay cut in order to seal a move to Old Trafford, according to the Daily Mail.

Manchester United, who have been long-term admirers of Sneijder, may finally land their man in January.

The 29-year-old is said to be keen on sealing a move to the Premier League champions so he can join up with fellow Dutchman and close friend Robin van Persie.

And Manchester United boss David Moyes is desperate to recruit a midfielder during the January transfer window, as the likes of Tom Cleverley, Anderson and Marouane Fellaini have struggled to impress the Scotsman.

Dutch international Sneijder earns £6million a year at Turkish giants Galatasaray - but is willing to take a £1million wage drop.

Manchester United will have to pay £8million for the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan midfielder if they are to prise him away from Galatasaray.
