Sneijder interested in Man U
London: Wesley Sneijder has confirmed his interest in joining Manchester United, and admitted that his representatives have held informal talks with the Premier League champions.
Asked if he would like to move to Old Trafford in a video interview on a Dutch website Sneijder said: “Yes, but Manchester United have not made an official approach yet. There have been unofficial talks, there have been contacts, but I have contacts with everybody.”
The Dutchman has emerged as manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s preferred midfield reinforcement, though the Scot is believed to have been sufficiently impressed with his young players in pre-season to consider looking for Paul Scholes’s replacement within Old Trafford’s ranks.
Sneijder, certainly, is not ruling out remaining at Inter Milan, though both the player and the Serie A side have been clear that an offer of 35 million pounds would be too good to turn down.
