Old Trafford boss scouts Germany v Holland game.
Manchester United had scouts in the stands for last night’s friendly between Germany and Holland.
Germany thrashed their Dutch opponents and United were understood to be running the rule over three Oranje players.
Long-standing target Wesley Sneijder, of Inter Milan, was in their focus, along with Ajax defender Gregory van der Wiel and Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.
Sir Alex Ferguson may well feel that he can add a player or two to his Old Trafford squad although interest in all three of these Dutch internationals may be a bit of a stretch.
Man United were heavily linked with a move for Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder and given the poor form shown by the Serie A giants this term, currently in 17th place, a move could still be a possibility but the form shown by Tom Cleverley seemed to ease Ferguson’s concerns about the lack of creativity in the centre of the club’s midfield.
A move for Klaas-Jan Huntelaar has also been the focus of some speculation as the Schalke man has started the current campaign with a bang netting 10 Bundesliga goals already to his name and the Dutch striker also finished top scorer in the Euro 2012 qualifying campaign with a stonking 12 goals!
Ajax right back Gregory van der Wiel has become the target of furious speculation over the past few months with Chelsea and Man City keen on the 23 year old but does Sir Alex need to bring in another full back? Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and the club’s Brazilian twins can play in this position so perhaps a move for this target is the most unlikely.
