Sir Alex Ferguson wants Holland star Wesley Sneijder to drive Manchester United’s title push

July 7th, 2010

Dutch of class: Sneijder

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has made Wesley Sneijder his top target of the summer.

Ferguson is lining up a £25million bid for the player who has scored three goals in Holland’s march to the World Cup semi-finals.

Sneijder, 26, enjoyed a successful season with Inter Milan, winning Serie A, the Italian Cup and the Champions League in his first season at the San Siro after arriving from Real Madrid for £13million.

But new Inter boss Rafa Benitez could be prepared to let Sneijder go as he attempts to build his own team after succeeding Jose Mourinho.

Ferguson wants the Dutchman to play in the hole behind United striker Wayne Rooney as they try to wrest the Premier League title back from Double winners Chelsea.

United do not have a bottomless pit for a transfer kitty but the Glazer family will provide funds to lure Sneijder as at his age he has a re-sale value.

And Benitez could be willing to do business as the former Liverpool boss has made signing  Anfield midfielder Javier Mascherano his priority this summer.
