Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are not shocked by this rumour after Metro explained how Paris Saint-Germain are also interested in signing Galatasaray’s Wesley Sneijder.
The Red Devils have been long term admirers for the Dutch superstar but a move has never materialised to allow him to move to Old Trafford.
But now that he is 30, his value will have decreased and also Louis van Gaal previously coached him at the World Cup in Brazil.
This means it is United’s best chance to sign him but PSG could still beat them to him.
Sneijder may potentially be put off with a move to the Premier League as he does not want to tarnish his reputation.
Whilst instead he could join the current Ligue 1 champions and become a cult hero, like he has done in Turkey.
Sneijder still has two years remaining but he may opt to leave Galatasaray and end his career elsewhere.
