Man United are once again being strongly linked with Dutch international Wesley Sneijder with David Moyes expressing an interest in the long term Sir Alex Ferguson target according to CalcioMercato.

The experienced playmaker has revived his ailing career in Turkey thus far enjoying his time at Galatasaray after something of a struggle in the latter stages of his time at Inter Milan.

The 29 year old moved to Galatasaray in a cut-price €7.5m (£6.4m) deal back in January and proceeded to help his side to reach the Champions League quarter-finals before helping the Istanbul side to a Super Lig title, his fourth championship in four different countries, could the former Ajax and Real Madrid man be tempted into looking for a fifth via the Premier League?

David Moyes is still yet to secure a high profile addition to the squad he inherited from Sir Alex Ferguson and could perhaps consider a move for the experienced playmaker as a possibility as he looks to add more creativity to a somewhat brittle midfield.

Sneijder has proven himself in the Eredivisie, La Liga and Serie A and may well be excited by the prospect of a fresh challenge in the English top tier.

Whilst the likes of Michael Carrick and Tom Cleverley, seemingly Moyes’s first choice central midfield options, offer a fair bit of momentum neither creates much in the way of assists and the pair do not get on the score-sheet all that often, Sneijder could offer a better link between midfield and attack and could well be inexpensively purchased.
