“The interest from Manchester United in Sneijder is real”
It is no secret that Manchester United need reinforcements in midfield. The frailty’s have been for all to see this season, and it is credit to the winning mentality at the club that they are at the top of the Premier League table by five points without playing their best football.
Paul Scholes is still yet to sign an extension on his contract with the club, and if he does decide to retire or move on at the end of the season, Sir Alex will urgently need to find a replacement. Likewise, Owen Hargreaves’ injuries continue to pester him, and whether or not Ferguson decides to stick with him and attempt to get his moneys worth for the Canadian is yet to be seen.
Nevertheless, it is no surprise that Inter Milan have confirmed United’s interest in Wesley Sneijder. Last summer, Sir Alex dismissed the fact that he had made a bid for the 26 year-old Dutchman. He said:
“I don’t know where those reports about Sneijder came from. How can anybody turn me down when I haven’t even made a bid?”
The interest however has now been confirmed by the Inter Milan President, Massimo Moratti who said this:
“The interest from Manchester United in Sneijder is real. But I didn’t look into it. My only interest is seeing Sneijder play here for many more years to come.”
Sneijder is the creative spark that the United midfield would love to have. In 21 games this season, the Dutchman has scored 3, created 5 and unleashed an ambitious 93 shots on goal. He is quick, strong and powerful with accurate shooting ability but apparently out of United’s reach.
