Wesley Sneijder has come out today and admitted that he is flattered to be linked, once again with a move to Manchester United but admits that he will not leave Turkey with Galatasaray, even though his former national manager Louis van Gaal is a big attraction at Old Trafford.
Sneijder was first choice in in central midfield for the Netherlands during this summers world cup under Louis van Gaal, however, as the new United boss added a number of new names at Old Trafford over the transfer winodw, Sneijder has admitted now that he is not tempted to come to England and will stay with Galatasaray.
Speaking with a national newspaper in Turkey, Wesley Sneijder said:
“It is great to hear that Van Gaal is interested in me, he is a footballing genius
“However I doubt Manchester United could tempt me to leave Galatasaray right now, I don’t see it happening. Everything is going well for me in Istanbul and I have settled into life in Turkey and feel at home.
“I don’t even know why we keep talking about this. Galatasaray will not be letting me go for a cheap price. It is very unlikely that any deal will happen.”
