Manchester United have been long term admirers of Dutch international and it seems that the Devils will finally sign him on before deadline today.
The former Inter Milan star was one of the best attacking midfielders in the World a few years back.
However, his best days are surely past him and it is strange that Louis van Gaal wants to sign his compatriot even when he has playmakers like Di Maria, Mata and even Rooney in the side who can play in the position Sneijder does.
This season, in 25 appearances, the Galatasaray star has netted 5 goals and provided two assists.
Sneijder will turn 31 this year and it will be intriguing to see how Van Gaal can take the best out of him if he arrives.
According to reports, Manchester United are finally going to sign Sneijder from the Turkish giants for 20 million Euros.
As per the provided link, both parties are ready to put pen to paper and finalize the deal before deadline today.
Signing another attacking midfielder should be not be Van Gaal’s priority as there are other departments that need major reinforcements.
Sneijder will be Van Gaal’s second Dutch addition to Manchester United’s squad after he signed Daley Blind from Ajax in the summer transfer window.
Whether Sneijder can find more playing time ahead of the world class trio of Di Maria, Rooney and Mata? only time will tell.
