Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are debating some surprise transfer news to emerge, with many questioning this proposed news.
Sneijder, who came close to joining United in 2011 before eventually joining Galatasaray, has worked with Mourinho previously at Inter Milan, where the pair won the Champions League together as part of an unprecedented treble.
Whilst Sneijder played down the chances of joining his former boss at Old Trafford, he did leave the door slightly ajar as he said:
‘The rumours about Manchester have been in play again in the last few days. Yes, it is true that I have a special relationship with Mourinho but it is not true that he wants me anyway.’
‘I talked to him but that does not mean that he is going to try and get me. I congratulated him on his job in Manchester and I wished him success. But of course you have to remember that in football anything can happen.’
Our landlord believes this move could have happened a few years back but now that time has passed.
Would Sneijder still be useful for Manchester United? Let us know in the comments below!
