Sneijder Drops Wage Demands To Secure Manchester United Move

By on August 18, 2011

Manchester Untied target Wesley Sneijder is desperate to secure a move to the Premiership this summer and is prepared to reduce his wage demands by £60,000 a week, according to reports.

The Inter Milan playmaker is wanted by Sir Alex Ferguson but the Red Devils refuse to pay his £250,000 wage demands. The deal had appeared to be dead but the Dutch international is now prepared to lower his wages demands to secure his dream move to United.

Sneijder is hopeful of resurrecting the deal with Inter Milan happy to sell the midfielder for £35million according to the Sun. Sir Alex Ferguson has said many times this summer that a deal for Sneijder isn’t on the cards and he’s happy with his squad, but you wouldn’t put it past the Scot to pull this deal off before the end of the month.

    i must admit that saf is really playing poker with his midfield. i wish man-u well, but even so, am beginning to get frustrated by saf’s burying his head in the sand over his midfield inadequacy.i feel like we are taking this problem far more seriously than the one who should. football has become tougher and teams have changed their style of play-even man u, into a modern speedy and possessive game and you cant do that with an experimental midfield. sir alex ferguson needs to really do something about his midfield. it is the weakness west bromwich capitalised on and inadequacy is quite visible it’s a midfied that cannot even play possessively and speedily for 90minutes.what about when they meet with barcelona? i guarantee, the same thrashing will take place. with such a midfield, man-u are way behind catching up on barcelona. to be honest, man-u need two more world class creative midfielders.

    No quotes or facts in this article, just a poor SEO attempt to bring visitors to this website. This transfer was dead long ago, stop dragging it on.

    Sal stop being unnecessarily abusive, I’m a man u fan, and I think eric is right. That our midfield is nt strong enough. Saf is still experimenting, there is no time for that. Our midfield is our Achilles heel. Dats y manu keep loosn to the likes of barca. We still need a box to box midfielder (like tiote) and maybe a creative midfielder.

    I am man utd fan,all what i know abou man utd midfielders are not strog enough, that why barca have beat man u 2 times in the recent uefa champions league final.But having a top class midfielder like wesely sniedjer can make the man utd midfield to become very strong.

    sal is spot on here – the rest of you can go support the bitters if you dont like it.

    hi sal, am really sorry if i annoyed with my comments.as i have always said, mine is a layman’s opinion i would like a superior mind to try to show me what i am not able to see.however let’s try and be modest in our use of words. nobilty in speech and intellectual capacity and articulation is a virtue all man-u fans have.why dont you advance your perception of this midfield issue and maybe we might see things differently. remember our problem is not fellow fans with divergent opinions, our main problem is barcelona. we want man-u to beat them and become the number one club in the world,dont you?

    United is labouring to win games, which shouldn’t be, and all this is happening because we lack a creative midfield that can make the job of the strikers easier. Let it be known that the reason United have survived in recent seasons is Van dar Sar who had kept out a lot of possible goals. You deny this only if your memory is short…Woe betide United if they meet teams that score and defend solidly (save your BPs fellow United fans). Adios.
