Manchester United coulf pursue Santos midfielder Ganso, after a deal with Wesley Sneijder fell though, according tot he International Business Times.

Sneijder admitted yesterday that while a move is still possible, it is looking very likely that he will stay at Inter Milan, particularly after Smauel Eto’o left the club.

"At this point I don't think I will move. But, on the other hand, my move to Real Madrid was solved within eight hours. Things can move fast," Sneijder said.


"It was either me or Eto'o to leave Inter and since he has now gone there is no need for Inter to sell me. It would be very strange if something happened now. There is nothing going on behind the scenes."

Manchester United were reportedly unable to meet Sneijder’s wage demands, thought to be in excess of £200,000 a week.

But United have other midfield target options, as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to find a long-term replacement for Paul Scholes. The manager has now set his sights on a last minute deal with Ganso, who has been connected to United on a number of occasions this summer.

Should Ganso make the move to Manchester United, fans will no doubt be shocked at Ferguson making the move in the last 12 hours of the transfer window – David Gill has insisted that United are not to make any more signings this summer, and the squad are already in a very good position in the league, with big name signings Ashley Young, Phil Jones and David De Gea showing moments of brilliance for the club already.
