Manchester United Transfer News: Wesley Sneijder Slams Door on Transfer Saga
Wesley Sneijder has closed the door on a possible move to Old Trafford once and for all.
The 27-year old Dutch superstar has been linked to the defending English champions for the better part of a fortnight and United first-team coach Rene Meulensteen stirred the pot once more with comments regarding the playmaking midfielders availability.
This last bit of chatter has prompted Sneijder to speak, and according to Mirror Football the Dutchman said:
'I'm staying at Inter. I don't think I'll leave at this moment in the transfer market. Manchester United? Anything is possible in football, but I don't think this time something will happen.'
'I know that if I were to leave it would have to be for the right price, Inter was clear about that. But I have not spoken formally with the two Manchester clubs.'
Said price would have to be at least £35 million.
Inter, who earlier in the summer tried to justify the sale of Sneijder as a financial matter, have just sold striker Samuel Eto'o. Financial matters seem like indefensible cause now.
Inter is only one year removed from a UEFA Champions League title and Sneijder was a big, big part of that.
Sir Alex Ferguson's side needed a replacement for Paul Scholes, but they may have found a suitable lineup that doesn't need a superstar in his place.
The Red Devils have looked great out of the gate and their only problem is a surplus of talent up top. Ashley Young and Wayne Rooney have become fast friends working together beautifully from the left side into the middle.
Tom Cleverley has been great in the middle, Danny Welbeck has been phenomenal alongside Rooney and a median starting age of 23-years old gives the Red Devils one of the youngest outfits in the sport.
Sneijder is a phenomenal player and has the potential to be star at Old Trafford. Looking at things now, United appears to be more than capable of dominating without the Dutch star.
