Former Real Madrid star on Man United radar

Manchester United could be set to revive interest in former-Real Madrid midfielder Wesley Sneijder according to TalkSPORT.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a long-term admirer of the Dutch international and believed he had done enough to bring Sneijder to Old Trafford in a £30 million deal from Inter in 2010.

The 28-year-old is understood to have turned United down, however, with reports suggesting the English side didn’t offer Sneijder enough money. The talented midfielder remained at Inter where he has become frustrated at his lack of playing time.

The Italian club’s coach Andrea Stramaccioni believes Sneijder is still unfit after a recent groin injury and has been reluctant to start the player who joined Inter from Real Madrid in 2009 – for a fee reported to be around €15 million.

Inter are believed to be keen on cutting their wage bill, and with Ferguson a known admirer of Sneijder, United could rekindle their interest in bringing the player to Old Trafford.
