Manchester United assistant coach Rene Meulensteen believes the signing of Wesley Sneijder would be ideal for the club.

Following the retirement of Paul Scholes, United are reportedly keen to bolster their midfield options, with Sneijder being heavily linked with the Red Devils, amongst others.

The Dutchman's club, Inter Milan, have treated the reports with distain, but Meulensteen says Sneijder would be the perfect fit for United.

"I cannot actually think of a more ideal player for our team," he said.

"He seems a perfect complement to the likes of (Javier) Hernandez, (Wayne) Rooney, Park (Ji- sung), (Ashley) Young, (Antonio) Valencia, Nani and (Ryan) Giggs.


"And, of course, Wesley has the necessary experience in top level football. I don't know what his future is at Inter, whether he may leave or whether he's affordable. But, purely based on football skills, I say get Sneijder."

The comments from the United assistant come 24 hours after Inter coach Gian Piero Gasperini said the club were unsure whether the playmaker would stay at the San Siro.

“It's difficult to know what can happen in the next 50 days of the transfer market,” he said.

"Wesley's situation does not worry me. In recent years, Inter have made fewer mistakes in the transfer market than other clubs and have made the best choices. Hence, I can only be optimistic."
