TRANSFER NEWS: Ace Confirms His Interest In Joining Man United

By on August 10, 2011

Wesley Sneijder has confirmed that he is interested in joining Manchester United this summer, but has moved to play down the chances of a transfer happening.

According to an ESPN translation, when Sneijder was asked whether or not he was interested in joining Manchester United, he said:

“Yes, but Manchester United haven’t made an official approach yet. There have been unofficial talks, there have been contacts, but then there are always contacts.”


These are indeed, promising words for Manchester United fans, especially those who are absolutely sure that Wesley Sneijder must be bought in to Old Trafford in order to keep up with title rivals and European rivals, in particular, Barcelona.

Most events in this long drawn out transfer saga, details have been very vague, and Sneijder continued in that vain, by saying, quite rightly, that there is a chance he could stay, just as there is a chance he could leave. The Dutch midfielder said:

“The situation is that I am now an Inter player, and chances are that I will still be that come August 31. There is also a chance I could leave. That isn’t really down to me but the club. I think Inter have been very clear: if a good offer comes in, they have to let me go.

“They don’t want to lose me but there is a chance they will let me go. If something crosses my path, I have enough time to make my decision.”

His tone seems to have changed only very slightly, in that he isn’t claiming full comitment to Inter Milan, and is clearly considering his future. His view is, that it is down to the two clubs, Inter Milan and Manchester United coming to an agreement over him, which, despite rumours that it has happened, has not.

Sneijder gave very little away, and when he was asked if he would stay in the UK after the Netherlands friendly with England at Wembley (which has now been cancelled due to the London riots), for talks with Manchester United, he said:

“I don’t know.”
