Man Utd to replace Nani with Wesley Sneijder?

Manchester United will reportedly renew their interest in Galatasaray playmaker Wesley Sneijder next year.

Sneijder had been linked with a move to the Premier League for over two years before he agreed to join Galatasaray during the January transfer window, and has been linked with United on a number of occasions.

Back in September, Gala's sporting coordinator, Bulunt Tulun, claimed that David Moyes failed with a bid to sign the Netherlands international shortly before the transfer window closed at the start of September, and according to Turkish newspaper Sabah, the United boss is willing to offer either Nani or Antonio Valencia as part of a deal for the former Real Madrid midfielder when the transfer window reopens.

According to the report coming out of Turkey, the Red Devils are prepared to offer either player, plus around £2million, for a deal to happen.

Sneijder has fallen out of favour with Holland since leaving Inter Milan and moving to Turkey at the start of the year.

The 29-year-old has also been linked with Chelsea, and Louis van Gaal last month encouraged the player to move to Stamford Bridge to improve his chances of making Holland's World Cup squad next summer.

However, Sneijder recently said he is happy to remain in Turkey, telling Lig TV when asked about a move to the Blues: "Everywhere Jose Mourinho goes they make some rumours about me following.

"Whatever club I'm at I will give 100%.

"I love this club and I am not even thinking to leave. It's just rumours and you will see come January I will be linked with Chelsea again but I am staying here.

"Every transfer market I am apparently moving to one club or another but these are just rumours, I am happy and I like life here."
