Manchester United fans are looking up with some glee here in the Football Transfer Tavern as our landlord relays the latest claim from the Daily Express.
The publication seem to think that Galatasaray star Wesley Sneijder has made it clear that he is becoming increasingly fed up with life in Turkey and would be willing to consider a move away as January approaches.
After being benched by Cesare Prandelli’s in Galatasaray’s recent fixture to Trabzonspor, speculation that the Dutch international could flee the Turk Telekom Arena has emerged once more.
Now as our punters note, the fact that Snejider knows both United boss Louis van Gaal and Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho well means that he will be linked with both clubs non-stop. However, we are struggling to see just where he could fit into the Chelsea side.
United on the other hand are a different matter altogether but we think that given these links come around each and every season, they should certainly be taken with a pinch of salt for now!
Manchester United fans. Would Wesley Sneijder represent an astute January purchase or should you be targeting younger up-and-coming pros? Let us know your thoughts below.
