Manchester United fans have voted emphatically in favour of adding Wesley Sneijder to the club's ranks in January.

GiveMeFootball surveyed over 20,000 Red Devils fans on facebook, and found that a staggering 84% (16,869) wanted the Dutch international to be the player moving to Old Trafford in 2012.

Speculation has been rife over the future of the Inter Milan playmaker after a summer of constant speculation, and reports have recently emerged that the Serie 'A' outfit could be willing to sell the player this month.

Sir Alex Ferguson has tried to play down Manchester United's possible movements, claiming he's happy with the squad and sees no need to make additions. The fans appear to disagree though, and quite clearly want Sneijder in their ranks.

As for other targets, Ajax starlet Cristian Eriksen came second in the survey, tabling 8% (1,727) of the public vote. The Danish international playmaker is tipped to have a huge future in the game, but has also been linked with Barcelona and Inter Milan.

Nicolas Gaitan and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar appear well out of the picture in the minds of supporters at least, with the Benfica and Schalke stars both collecting just 2% of the votes each (Gaitan slightly ahead of the Dutch striker).

Real Madrid defender Jordi Alba faired even worse, collecting just 168 of the total votes cast by United fans, which equated to less than 1% wanting the Spanish international at Old Trafford.

A host of other players have been linked with a move to the club, including Isaac Cuenca and Rasmus Elm, and 'other' came third in the list of possible targets, claiming 660 votes (3%).
