Manchester United have renewed their interest in Galatasaray schemer Wesley Sneijder, FootballDirectNews.com understands.
The Dutch playmaker has little more than two years remaining on his contract with the Turkish giants and a source close to the Red Devils told FDN that he is firmly on the radar of manager David Moyes.
While the Scot is assessing a number of different options to improve his midfield for next season, it is hoped that the short length of Sneijder’s contract can be exploited in a cut-price deal.
Moyes is anxious to add more creativity to his side and got the ball rolling with the January acquisition of Spain star Juan Mata from Chelsea.
However, there is room for another flair player in his side, as Mata often operates out wide and doubts remain over the long-term future of striker Robin van Persie. Should van Persie depart in the summer, Moyes could push highest earner Wayne Rooney into a more advanced role, allowing Sneijder to roam behind. United are likely to wait until they know whether they will be playing Champions League football next term before entering into talks over summer transfers.
