United A Step Away From Snapping Sneijder




Manchester United are finally set to secure the services of star midfielder Wesley Sneijder after the Dutchman agreed to United’s terms of 190,000 pounds a week. While the rest of the squad is on its pre-season tour of the United States, Chief Executive David Gill met Inter Milan executives at the European Club Association meeting and offered them an informal 35 million pound offer for the midfielder.

Inter were initially reluctant to sell their star who played a stellar role in helping Inter win the Champions League, Serie A and the Cup treble in 2010 but with 35 million pounds up for grabs, United have given them an offer that would be tough to reject. Sneijder had laid his terms to United about wanting 250,000 pounds a week but has agreed to the 190,000 figure after negotiations.

Ferguson, who is on a spending spree, has already splashed over 50 million pounds for securing David De Gea, Ashley Young and Phil Jones but with the likes of Paul Scholes retiring and Owen Hargreaves being released, Ferguson is on the lookout for an inspirational figure who can handle the midfield. United also had a 20 million bid for Samir Nasri turned down by Arsenal and were also keeping an eye on the German machine Schweinsteiger but if the Sneijder deal goes through, Ferguson can stop scouting for midfielders.

The transfer market is up and running with rumours of players moving hitting the headlines. For all news, views and gossip keep watching this space for more!
