Manchester United are on the verge of sealing a deal for Wesley Sneijder, according to The Sun.

The Dutch playmaker has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford, and despite publicly declaring his future to Inter Milan, he appears close to completing a move to the Premier League.

United have been searching for a replacement for Paul Scholes since the midfielder retired at the end of the season.


Their pursuit of Luka Modric and Samir Nasri is likely to see them lose out to Chelsea and Manchester City, leaving United will one remaining target in Sneijder.

Inter have maintained that Sneijder is not for sale and that they are yet to receive a bid for his services, however reports indicate United are keen to bring the World Cup finalist to the club to help bolster their search for domestic and European honours.

Phil Jones, Ashley Young and David De Gea have already made the switch to United this summer.
