Man United have long been linked with a move to 29 year old playmaker Sneijder and using Kagawa in order to land the former Real Madrid and Inter Milan man could be a cost effective way to seal the deal, providing of course that Galatasaray boss Roberto Mancini is interested in the Old Trafford bit-part player.

Moyes will feel his midfield lack creativity and a genuine goal threat and is wise to believe that Sneijder is an intelligent player to pursue to resolve both these concerns.
The experienced flair player has got his career back on track after a couple of lean seasons at the San Siro, that followed a hugely successful first term at the club during which he played a pivotal role in securing a memorable treble for then boss Jose Mourinho.
A move to bring in a player who can ably link midfield and attack is all the more crucial given that wide attackers Nani, Luis Antonio Valencia and Ashley Young have all failed to deliver consistent performances this season.
