Wesley Sneijder could still join Manchester United or Chelsea

Sneijder's long-term future is very much in doubt
Sneijder's long-term future is very much in doubt.

Premier League giants Manchester United and Chelsea are still keeping a close check on Galatasaray star Wesley Sneijder with a view to a cut price €15m deal this summer, according to Turkish publication Radikal.

Sneijder has helped Galatasaray become a firm fixture in the Champions League knockout stages since completing a surprise switch to Turkey last January, but United are long-term admirers of the Dutch international and had a tentative enquiry knocked back at the start of the season.

Galatasaray president Unal Aysal has previously confirmed that he will let the playmaker walk away form Istanbul for a fee of just over €15m, which Radikal believe is enough of a bargain to keep United and Chelsea interested.

Blues boss Jose Mourinho has a strong working relationship with Sneijder, built during their all-conquering treble season together at Inter Milan.

The 29-year-old has a decision to make over his long-term future this summer, with Gala boss Roberto Mancini under no illusions that his team needs wholesale changes to compete in the latter stages of the Champions League after being soundly beaten by Chelsea in the last 16 this season.

With two years left on his current contract Gala are open to selling Sneijder to make room for star names next season, with United and Chelsea taking a watching brief but now ahead of a potential offer after this summer's World Cup finals.
