One of Jose Mourinho's first acts as Manchester United boss could be to sign Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder.
This has been reported by The Sun, who claim that the Portuguese tactician believes Galatasaray ace Sneijder is the game changer that the Red Devils need.
Mourinho, of course, has been heavily linked to the top job at Old Trafford in recent days. The experienced coach was only dismissed as manager of Chelsea late last week, but it appears that he could be set for a return to management sooner rather than later.

And with current United boss Louis van Gaal failing to produce the goods in terms of results and performances, it appears that the former Chelsea man could become the club's new manager before the end of the year.
Incredibly, then, if The Sun are to be believed, Mourinho has already lined up his first signing for the Red Devils.
Jose wants Sneijder
Sneijder has long been linked to United in the past, while he played an instrumental role under the guidance of Mourinho during his days with Inter Milan.
However, a move for Sneijder now would surely represent somewhat of a risk. The technically gifted star is a huge name in the world of football, but he's now approaching the latter stages of his career.
At 31-years-old, the Dutchman is by no means the force he once was but would certainly provide an interesting option for United. Of course, if this deal is to come to prominence, then the Old Trafford hierarchy will have to hand Mourinho the top job.
