Manchester United should press ahead with a deal to sign Wesley Sneijder, according to Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk.

Since the retirement of Paul Scholes, Sneijder has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.

But despite Inter Milan's insistence that the Dutchman isn't for sale, Van Marwijk is insistent that United make the move happen because of the quality that Sneijder can bring.


"A transfer to Manchester United would only make Wesley a better player. He has already played for some top clubs in Real Madrid and Inter, but I think that United will be another step forward for him," he said.

"Because of their footballing philosophy and the level they play at, but also because it’s a new challenge. It will inspire him and give him new energy."

"It will also be good for the national team. I can see Wesley making the same impact at United as with Oranje. I think that he would fit in very well."
