United Latest | Manchester United News
Sir Alex Ferguson has admitted Manchester United’s interest in Wesley Sneijder, but echoed Inter Milan’s stance that the Italian giants do not want sell. United CEO David Gill has been spotted in Milan, staying behind to iron-out a club record £35 Million move for the Dutch midfielder…

Sneijder, 27, is seen as a perfect replacement for recently-retired midfield genius Paul Scholes. The Holland International is at the prime age of his football career, and is 9 years younger than Scholsey. Admittedly, Sir Alex has had his eye on the World Cup finalist for a couple of years now, having spotted Sneijder playing for Ajax in 2007, before his big-money move to Real Madrid. Inter then signed the ace in 2009 for a bargain £13 Million. 
“No, these reports (of a bid being tabled) are not true.” Sir Alex told foreign media during the week. “Inter refuse to sell him, so it’s a difficult situation. We’ll see.” Inter director Marco Branca added: “There’s not been an official offer and there has never been the intention to listen to them. He is not for sale. It’s not surprising that Sneijder is a player that is liked by many teams, including the strongest in the world like our team is (joke ?).”
The usual signal in Italy of discussions taking place over a move is when one of the clubs in question deny that the said player is on the verge of a transfer. Now that this has happened, it is understood that David Gill has flown to Italy in a bid to complete a club record €40 (£35) Million deal by Friday. Sneijder has been offered something in the region of £200,000 per week by United, and is keen on a switch to the world’s best-supported team…

Good asset to the club if he comes



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 7:10:19 pm

Biggest and best signing in a long time!
We have been papering over the need for a creative CAM since Ronaldo was with us. Scholsey has been a genius but not quite been the same since his long injury spell.

Wes will bring a dynamic creative catalyst we have been craving for the past 2 or 3 years!


Wed, 13 Jul 2011 7:10:23 pm

How true is all dis report? We all have been waiting for this but if he is not coming let us know than to be carry wrong report. We need him but if he is not ready let him go. Another person we come..

If we get Wesley then Villas-Boas’ magic will not work in his first.I could swear he will be sacked by December 2012



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 7:45:03 pm

Does anyone know if nani is part of the deal. I will be gutted if he is our best player last season and keep improving.

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 7:52:58 pm

Some idiots are trying to debunk these reports, saying that Gill was in Zurich, not Milan. Don’t listen to these dickheads, Zurich is a less than three hours from Milan.

Wesley is on the way.



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 7:54:21 pm

the best signing since veron in 02/03! Serious! Like veron a world class operator, but should fit in alot better.



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 7:54:22 pm

Nick the red

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 9:29:55 pm

Is Sneijder signing or not ? Someone must know, I really want to know, if we get him it is a BIG deal, we will clean up domestically and he could be the key ingredient to more big signings and the bridge to gap Barca

I will be very happy if wes can put on United shirt & it wil b a great adition 2 d club Red Army!!

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 9:42:07 pm

Is good 2 see some new faces n d squad and i tink wes wil fit in parfectly but Sir Alex should sign Kagawa so dat dey wil b pair Red Army!!


red lester

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 9:47:19 pm

if we get him it will be a dream just get rid of the waste of space carrick and replace him with lass diara then we have him and fletch for dm and wes and ando for cam ando will develop this year if end of last season is anything to go by


Wed, 13 Jul 2011 9:52:03 pm

@ ‘News’

Yes, and if you read the above article, it doesn’t say a deal has been made.



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 9:52:57 pm

Shacka hislap just said on talksport that sir alex said sneijder is not on his radar. I don’t know who or what to believe. I was told that the deal for Nasri is done but can’t announce it because arsenal want to keep it quite until they finish touring.



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 10:01:00 pm

Wud be a Gr8 signing ! hopefully he’ll give us that balance our midfield is crying out for,, just hope he doesn’t turn out to be another veron who was the best player in Italy at the time b4 he moved to Utd ? The Premier league can be punishing


Bill McNeal

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 10:03:07 pm

Can the people who post comments at least attempt to spell properly?

And after doing that, can they answer the conundrum of how Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Wesley Sneijder are all going to start in the same XI?

Bad signing, Samir Nasri would be a much better signing.



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 10:05:53 pm

yes finally sum 1else who agrees that lass diara shud be brought nxt



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 10:22:13 pm

@ bill McNeal

Well said mate I agree 100% with you comments



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 10:26:40 pm

nasri and sneijder play the same role. If we sign him we should play this formation.

De Gea
Rafeal rio vidic evra
Valencia/young nani
Chicarito Rooney


Happy Red

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 10:34:35 pm

Bill McNeal:

Nani, Fletcher, Sneijder, Young
Rooney, Hernandez

Fletcher, Carrick,
Valencia, Sneijder, Rooney

Who says they have to play together anyway? There are plenty of games to go around.


Lee Taylor

Wed, 13 Jul 2011 10:35:20 pm

How would Sneijder be a bad signing?

It would allow us to play wider game. A 442 could be used and/or 4411. With a CAm like sneijder dictating play with dissecting passes controlling the flow with Rooney having a licence to roam and play off sneijder with pace and freedom. I CAM like Sneijder would mean Nani wouldnt have to come in field and keep the wide shape by playing to the byline feeding Chico in the box with Rooney arriving late and Sneider prowling the edge of the box as he does!

It worked well with CAM scholes in his glory days with cantona playing off the front man and would be even more potent now!

Just my opinion 🙂



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 11:01:56 pm

Come 2 us sneijder we need u 2 replace scholes,ur th only 1 that is maybe capable of replacin him



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 11:10:20 pm

This is great news if it happens but Let`s not get carried away. The ABU`s will love it if it didn’t come off.



Wed, 13 Jul 2011 11:14:01 pm

Good if it comes off but let`s not get carried away till he signs. the ABU`s would love it if we claim him as a red and he stays in Milan

deal done lads the Mirrior Sneijder agreed united move



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 12:44:11 am

Yo Sean this better b true



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 1:38:43 am

Believe it when I see it!! Sky sports news or standin nxt 2 fergie holdin the shirt!! C’mon u reds!!



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 1:50:15 am

Yeah Sean I heard that too. 190k a week!!!



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 5:59:54 am

manchester united always made contact with player agents not the club hold the player..if manchester united does not have any agreement with player.then how on earth they negotiate with club…

agreement with sniejder all ready done.its negotiation with club was going on last few days…



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 6:04:46 am

verbal term agreed just paper work taking time..i think 32million pound or something we agreed to pay inter..

paper work done always after club agree fee for transfer…



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 7:28:19 am

Fergie said after game that he has heard about story if Wesley but utd are not interested! Now just forget he’s not coming



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 7:32:45 am

@ simpson

Theres no verbal term or fee agreed, dont post unless u know its fact, which its not, sir alex has told espn press ‘theres nothing in this’ theres going to be a lot of unhappy people on here when they finally realise he’s NOT signing !



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 9:00:42 am

I think these writers have nothing else to do so they make up stories, 1st they said that the deal will be finalized by Wednesday now it’s Friday, then by Friday it will go to next week. I don’t think United are going to sign him, i think Fergie is going to find a Scholes replacment within the club



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 9:46:49 am

United are ready to use Nani as bait in their bid to lure Wesley Sneijder to Old Trafford. Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to offer £20m in cash plus the winger. (Daily Star)



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 10:00:59 am

Are you really going to believe the daily star that’s has babes showing there boobs?



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 12:16:12 pm

@breaking news. Where did you get your source from? Any link? I feel that Fergie would not go into an exchange plus cash deal for Wes ESP when it comes to nani. Doesnt make business sense.. Nani is young and improving tremendously!



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 12:43:01 pm

No Way Fergie is going to sell Nani! Valencia is injury prone, thats why he bought in Ashley Young. Look at Young and Nani on the wings… as time passed, their understanding shall improve and they will be devastating!



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 12:54:25 pm


Your 100% right and more over Valencia only can play wide right and doesn’t cut inside. Nani is two feet as well



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 1:08:05 pm

all this talk of sneijder signing today or tomorrow is just rumours,its just making everybody angry with the persistant rumours that he is signing soon,nobody has got 100% true information about it.


Johnny Irish

Thu, 14 Jul 2011 2:40:12 pm

Is anyone else sick of this Sneijder talk. He will categorically NOT SIGN FOR UTD. Gill went to Zurich for a conference and to quote Fergie himself. ”I keep reading about this, there’s absolutely nothing at all to that [reports of United’s interest in the player],” Now can you please end this silly season speculation. We need to concentrate on our current midfielders and those that will be coming through this season



Thu, 14 Jul 2011 6:06:07 pm

Erm, dunno about all these Sneijder issues, dunno which to trust. Haa. But almost certain that Fergie indeed bidded for Nasri, from the way he answered the press. Well, don’t worry guys. With or without Sneidjer, we will be fine!


mr endowed

Thu, 14 Jul 2011 11:59:33 pm

this Sneijder deal is really becoming boring!!!!! United-latest should jus stop blogging about it till there is enough evidence that he’s coming.it was the same with Nasri till SAF cleared the air.you should get a life,really!!!


Mufc Dave

Fri, 15 Jul 2011 8:08:04 am

We need that big signing .who now???


Bill McNeal

Fri, 15 Jul 2011 3:41:36 pm

Re: Happy Red

Wesley Sneijder isn’t a centre midfielder and Wayne Rooney isn’t a left-winger.
