Galatasaray star Wesley Sneijder has reportedly dissociated himself from rumors linking him to the Manchester club.

Sneijder has long been linked with a move to Old Trafford, and United's midfield struggles this season have sparked fresh talk of the Dutchman joining the Premier League champions.

Not only this season, but United were interested in signing him some two or three seasons ago but the rumoured move never materialised.

After scoring in the snow on Wednesday he was keen to play down the reports linking him to a move to Manchester United.

"I know just as much as you. I don't even read the newspapers, but I've heard about the reports," He is quoted as saying on Sky Sports.

"At the moment it isn't an issue, but every time the transfer window is open, I get linked with
all kind of clubs.

"Sometimes it's frustrating, because I have to clarify it with the fans. Here in Turkey, the supporters are very  emotional. They have a lot of passion and I don't want to explain things
that I don't know about.

"Again, I know just as much as you do. I feel very good at Gala, and I'm glad we're through in the Champions  League. You'll never know, but at this point I'm happy here."

The dynamic Dutchman has obtained plenty of experience after playing for Ajax, Real Madrid and Inter Milan.

His ability has long been recognised as he shone during his Ajax days when he scored 43 times in just over 100 games.

His rise to prominence came during his Madrid days when he proved his ability to operate at the highest level.

Due to his impeccable placement and confirmed ability to score from free-kicks, Sneijder earned the reputation as a dead-ball specialist.

With a short stature, he is quick, strong on the ball, and his passing range is enhanced by his ambidexterity.
