Report: Galatasaray waiting for Manchester United's Sneijder call

Sneijder, Robben and De Jong Netherlands

There are reports that Galatasaray are ready to sell midfield star Wesley Sneijder and are expecting a call from Manchester United.

 

Wesley Sneijder is said to be a target for Manchester United and it is being suggested that Galatasaray are ready to do business.

 

Man United are expected to bring in some big names this summer after a disappointing campaign and the chosen recruits will be down to new boss Louis van Gaal.

 

It has been rumoured that the new United manager will try and lure Sneijder, who he is currently in charge of in his capacity as Holland's national coach.

 

Sneijder put in a solid season for Galatasaray with 12 goals in 28 games and he scored the goal which put Galatasaray through from their Champions League group at the expense of Juventus.

 

But many feel that the Dutchman's career has gone off the boil somewhat since 2010 when he won the treble with Inter and was pivotal in Holland's World Cup run to the final.

 

Galatasaray seem ready to cash in their asset and it is being reported that the Turkish side are waiting for a call with Manchester United one of the most likely teams to make an approach.

 

It is also reported that Sneijder isn't open to a return to Italy and it is widely believed that he is hoping for a first chance to play in the Premier League having so far played in Holland, Spain, Italy and Turkey.

 

The general estimated value of Sneijder is around £15m, which makes him affordable for most of Europe's bigger sides.
