Long-term Manchester United target Wesley Sneijder has revealed he is happy at Galatasaray.

The Dutchman has been linked with moves to Manchester United and Chelsea throughout his career but has never sealed a move to the Premier League.

Sneijder was mooted to be keen on sealing a move to Old Trafford in January as reports suggested he was willing to take a pay cut to join fellow Dutchman Robin van Persie at Manchester United.

However Sneijder has since confirmed that he is settled at Galatasaray under the stewardship of Roberto Mancini.

Sneijder, speaking to the Sun before his side's last-16 clash against Chelsea on Wednesday night, said on rumours linking him with a move to the Premier League:

“Gossip is gossip. There was nothing serious. I’m happy here. I feel good here. We have a good team, otherwise we wouldn’t be in the last 16 of Europe.

“I’m not ambitious to go to that competition. Of course it’s a great competition, maybe the biggest in the world.

“But I feel good here. We’re going to play against one of the teams from that competition, and it’ll be a hard game, a tough game, but we’ve prepared well and we will prepare well.

“We’ll see what happens tomorrow, but we feel really confident.”

Sneijder is expected to start against Chelsea tonight in a game that will see him go head-to-head against his former manager.

Chelsea will be hoping they can become the first English side to win in the last 16 of the Champions League after Manchester City, Arsenal and Manchester United lost 2-0 to Barcelona, Bayern Munich and Olympiakos respectively.
