Sir Alex has every right to be fuming over the tactics employed by Real Madrid to unsettle Manchester United’s prize asset, but now the Scot may be looking for a little bit of revenge!
United are reportedly furious with Real over their continued interest Cristiano Ronaldo and have even reported the Spanish club to Fifa over what they perceive to be an over-aggressive pursuit of their player.
It has now emerged that should Ronaldo decide he does want to swap Old Trafford for the Bernabeu, United will bid for Sneijder or more likely, ask him to be included as part of the deal that takes Ronaldo to Madrid.
Although United are desperate to keep hold of Ronaldo they may be forced to let him leave the club if Real offer a world record bid of €70 million and should the player reveal his desire to move to Madrid.
The Dutch midfielder is currently hot property after scoring two sumptuous goals already in Euro 2008 which have helped to propel his country into the knockout stages of the tournament.
Sneijder signed for Real from Ajax last summer for €27 million making him the second most expensive Dutch player in history. He went on to enjoy a successful first season in Spain, scoring on his debut and helping Real to retain their La Liga title.
Whilst there is no indication that Sneijder wants to leave the Bernabeu, should Ronaldo arrive he may find his place in the starting line up under threat, and he would certainly interest Sir Alex Ferguson as a potential replacement for Ronaldo at Manchester United. (goal.com)
£40m rated Sneijder is a fantastic player who in his first season in La Liga was an enormous success. The Dutchman has followed his Real Madrid achievements with two fantastic performances in the Euro 2008. The former Ajax man has all the attributes to succeed in the Premier League and should Cristiano leave Old Trafford then a lot of the pain over his departure would be lessened by the arrival of the 24 year old Utrecht born talent. Do United fans like the look of Wesley, and how do they feel about their Portuguese hero?
