Sneijder Door Left Ajar?

Sneijder Door Left Ajar?

Has the door been pushed slightly ajar for United to add that final piece of the jigsaw to their squad?

With Ashley Young, Phil Jones and David de Gea having already signed deals, it`s intimated that Sir Alex Ferguson is looking at acquiring one last big signing.

Previously, the focus with regards to bolstering the squad has been on the midfield department with Samir Nasri Luka Modric and Wesley Sneijder all names banded about.

Off those three, Nasri is off limits with Arsene Wenger not willing to sell him to us, Modric appears to want to move across London to Chelsea, which leaves Sneijder.

It had been thought that a move for Sneijder would be a no-no with the player happy at Inter Milan and with Inter in no rush.

But the vibes coming from the tabloid press are now suggesting something slightly different with the inference that Milan could be willing to sell to balance the books.

It`s even being suggested that the recent acquisition of the Argentine midfielder, Ricky Alvarez from the Argentine champions - Velez Sarsfield, could be the catalyst that sees Inter decide to sell the twenty-seven year old for a fee in the region of £35 million.

Keep watching, something just might materialize out of nothing here!

We need someone quickly. I'm getting restless. I can't see anyway how we can go into the season with what we already got. Especially if the others spend.

We definitely need to improve our midfield, Carrick has never been up to it, Anderson I think is over rated, some like him I just cant see why, Fletcher is a workhorse and would be a perfect foil for a more attack minded player,(Sneijder hopefully). The comments from Inter do give some hope to thoughts of us signing Sneijder but it will also alert a few other clubs, namely man *****y and chelski who will drive his price tag up, if a bid from us was accepted you would expect the other 2 clubs to match or exceed it leaving it to Sneijder himself to decide on who to join and I would expect, well hope, he would choose us.

At 35 to 40 mil it would be a very good deal. Whilst he might not have the resale value i'm sure we can make enough through shirt sales, image rights and all that as well as more through trophies. Inter can then sign Nasri to replace him, if it's actually possible to replace Sneijder that is.

Kanchelskis, I would be seriously let down if he chose Chelsea or City over us mainly due to his comments in the past about wanting to join us and play at the highest level in England. In my eyes, if he were to join Chelsea or City I would feel slightly betrayed and my high opinion of him will drop, solely because it would show his intentions of joining us were b0ll0x and money may of been the motivator.

I agree no7 if he does come to the prem and it is not to play for us but instead he chooses the millions of Red Rom or the Shady Sheikh I will be seriously *****ed off. As you stated though if he does come to us shirt sales and the like will cover a large proportion of his transfer fee, you could be on to something regarding Nasri replacing him at Inter if indeed we do manage to secure the signing of Sneijder. At least this seasons transfer silly season has been quite good to watch for us utd fans.
