Wesley Sneijder unlikely to make Manchester United move

Manchester United are unlikely to sign Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder this summer because of the players' relationship with Louis van Gaal. 

According to The Express, the new Manchester United boss - and current Dutch national coach - has a mixed relationship with Sneijder, meaning it's unlikely the 30-year-old will arrive at Old Trafford anytime soon. 

The former Inter Milan star has attracted interest from Premier League clubs over a number of years, with the likes of Chelsea and United having been linked with his services in recent time. 

However, it appears that he won't be heading to the Theatre of Dreams, despite working under Van Gaal for the Dutch national team. 

Sneijder and Van Gaal will be focussed on the up coming tournament, as they prepare for their first group game against current holders Spain on Friday evening. 

At Manchester United, meanwhile, transfer activity may be left up to executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward as the Red Devils go in search of rebuilding ahead of the 2014/15 campaign. 

Fans of the Old Trafford outfit will be desperate to see an improvement on the pitch after a nightmare season under David Moyes. The Red Devils missed out on European football under the previous regime after they only managed to secure a seventh placed Premier League finish. 

It remains to be seen, however, as to which players the new Manchester United boss looks to bring to the club in the transfer market.
