Manchester United are reportedly considering a January move for Galatasaray playmaker Wesley Sneijder.

Sneijder had been linked with a move to the Premier League for over two years before he agreed to join Galatasaray at the start of 2013, 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 The Guardian, the United boss is considering a move for the 29-year-old when the transfer window reopens at the start of next month.

United are widely expected to try and make new signings in January, despite Moyes at the weekend insisting he would not rush into moving for players.

However according to Tuesday's report, there is a sense that Sneijder is considering his future with Gala after recently parting company with his agent, Soren Lerby.

"In any transfer window you don't want to be bringing in a full batch of players, so I think there's a period of time that it takes," Moyes had told reporters following Saturday's 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle.

"The last one was a difficult one after just joining the club, so we've got a window in January where, if we think if it's right for the club, we'll do so.

"If not, we'll look again in the summer. This club is always looking to bring in the best talent and that won't change.

"I don't think I'll feel under pressure personally to do it [buy in January] as I'll try to do the right things.

"I tend to take my time and try to assess what are the best talents to bring in. You can see that from the players I brought in at Everton."
