Manchester United fans have been hit with bad news here in the Football Transfer Tavern after talkSPORT revealed that Red Devils target Wesley Sneijder has denied reports that he is leaving Galatasaray.
In recent weeks, much talk has surrounded Louis van Gaal making it a priority to bring his fellow countryman to Old Trafford but it now seems as though he will have to look elsewhere in January.
Some punters see this as good news because they would have been furious if van Gaal was to sign another attack-minded midfielder.
However, any possibility of a move materialising has now been nipped in the bud by the 30-year-old who has committed his future to the Turkish giants.
“There is always transfer news about me,” said Sneijder.
“The transfer season is approaching so this type of news is normal, they always seem to escalate at this time of the year and I don’t think you really need to guess why.
“I don’t take any notice of these rumours. As I keep saying over and over again, I am very happy at Galatasaray, I feel at home here at the club among my friends.
“I have never considered leaving but the rumours continues. All I am focused on is the team.”
