Sneijder Deal Now Imminent!

Sneijder Deal Now Imminent!

Although Inter Milan tried to claim that they`d received no offers for Wesley Sneijder and that he wasn`t in any talks to move anywhere, the internet is still implying different.

In fact it looks very much as if Sneijder will become a Manchester United player inside the next forty-eight hours.

We understand that David Gill is in Milan and that a deal has been brokered that will see Manchester United break their transfer record with Sneijder coming to Old Trafford and picking up £190,000, a week, in wages.

If so this will be the biggest transfer, this summer, by far in the Premier League and will stand United in good stead for a sustained trophy challenge next season!

Except Fergie has now confirmed what I said before, that we were never in the market for him. ---,19528,11661_7036521,00.html --- So, with Nasri, Modric and Sneijder being ruled out of the running that leaves Douglas Costa!! :D

Famous , let me ask you a question...has Fergie ever been known to telll a porkie especially in the transfer window??? The correct answer to this question should at least give you pause for thought!..Im not saying hes lying on this occasion but there should be some room for doubt!

The only thing I doubt is the substance of the story in the first place. Look at the evidence against the transfer. Fergie said Scholes is irreplaceable. Inter said Sneijder is 'untransferrable'. Inter have said Sneijder is not for sale. Fergie has said Inter won't want to sell. Sneijder has said he's happy at Inter. Fergie was chasing after Nasri, another deal he doesn't think will happen and will instead look to the academy, where we have Petrucci, Pogba, Cleverley, Morrison, James and the like. The policy implemented whereby we won't buy any players over the age of 26 for extortionate fees, Sneijder is both over 26 and extortionate. It's confirmed Gill is in Zurich for a meeting, not in Milan negotiating a deal. I'd love to be wrong but if Fergie was lying about anything I think it's more likely to be about Nasri. He doesn't completely rule out Nasri and says that the Arsenal board can't be happy with the possibility of Nasri leaving on a free which to me suggests he's trying to appeal to the Arsenal board rather than Arsene and also to Nasri to let him know we're not going to wait.

Oh really ? Scholes is irreplaceable ??? Is that supposed to be an undeniable (totally neutral) FACT ??? It pretty much looks like youll be playing with 10 men next season then??? No player is ''untransferable" - FACT! Sneijder not for sale? that is debatable , wait and see! Inter not wanting to sell? Yep they probably wont want to , but as for any player its merely down to the price as to whether they will sell. I would say no smoke without fire..Im not guaranteeing he will be sold but to me theres enough to cause doubt either way
14/07/2011 22:05:00
You still obsessing over whether i'm neutral on a matter? lol! Seriously though, get over it. Scholes being irreplaceable wasn't my opinion though it is one I share. Scholes is considered by most as the best in his position, the best of his generation, etc, etc according to footballing legends like Zidane, Henry, Charlton, Fergie, Guardiola, Davids, Viera, Hoddle, Adams, Lippi, Blanc, Neville, Keane, Best, etc, etc and soon to be legends like Xavi, Iniesta, Fabregas, Nani, in fact, pretty much who has ever seen Scholes play football or had the honour of playing against him. Whilst i'm at it I may as well kill 2 birds with one stone, Giggs, Scholes and Neville are/were untransferrable - FACT! As for no smoke without fire, Trezeguet, Akinfeev, Lahm, Schweinsteiger, Stekelenberg are just a few examples of smoke without fire.

Scholes is irreplaceable, and as FN7 points out, he is considered to be the best midfielder of his generation by his peers. I seriously doubt Sneijder will join United, its about money, and United will not pay stupid money for him. Especially not when we have got a lot of young talented players comming through, I think SAF will bite his time, and hope of the young players step up.. Still we have got Anderson, who could hit top gear this season.

I dnt even know what to believe anymore d transfer is becoming so annoying.............all i know is we r gonna be needing some to replace d void left by scohles.....
15/07/2011 10:36:00
What happened to Anderson? Thought he was the one being groomed to replace Scholes? He'll certainly get more playing time now that the ginger hacker has retired, but signing Sneijder will just set him back again.
15/07/2011 11:35:00
I'm with you Henry its getting very annoying. I don't think we are anywhere near strong enough in the center of the park. If Fergie wants to get closer to Barca he has to buy, we can't go into the next season with it weaker then what it was before. Personally I feel we should be replacing Hargreaves too.
15/07/2011 12:41:00
Anderson on his day is great player but due to his inconsistency it's never a guarentee he will be playing to the best of his ability. Anderson is also our only attack-minded midfielder meaning he's got no competition to push him for a starting place in the team. Also, in the event he's injured we have no back-up plan leaving us in the exact same position we were in last season. I firmly believe he can be a great player and you have a more than valid point about signing a Sneijder-esque player setting him back after showing promise that's why i'm keen on another young enthusiastic player being signed rather than a mid 20's established star who will hinder Anderson and other youngsters development.
