Galatasaray sporting director reconfirms Manchester United’s rejected Wesley Sneijder offer and £12.5m price tag placed on him

Galatasaray’s sporting director Bulent Tulun has reconfirmed that Manchester United had an indirect offer for Wesley Sneijder and their president Unal Aysal has placed a £12.5 million price tag on him.


Back in September, Tulun confirmed United’s rejected indirect offer (unsure as to what indirect means in this context) and Galatasaray’s decision to reaffirm that statement indicates they are probably keen to cash in on him if possible.

“Sneijder received an indirect offer from Manchester United last summer but it was not accepted,” he said.

Galatasaray president Unal Aysal has goaded Chelsea‘s interest and placed a £12.5 million price on Sneijder.

He said: “If Chelsea were to offer a deal worth over €15 million (£12.5m) I would give Sneijder permission to leave if that’s what he wanted.”

Once upon a time, Sneijder was seen as the perfect midfield signing to help fill the hole left behind by Paul Scholes and on paper he was certainly one of the best options available to Manchester United, but Inter Milan refused to sell to us.

Since then, we have gone on to buy Shinji Kagawa and Juan Mata who naturally operate in central attacking midfield roles and although Sneijder would have been perfect a while ago, buying him now would make little sense at all.

Plus, we’ve always had Tom Cleverley so we never really needed Sneijder in the first place…
