The Red Devils came close to signing the Dutchman last year, but eventually their interest cooled and he went on to pen a deal with Galatasaray just under 12 months ago.
Despite Senijder having been in Istanbul for a relatively short period of time, David Moyes is ready to test the Turkish club’s willingness to hold onto the midfield ace with a winter offer.
The Scot is desperate to add some guile to his engine room, and sees the former Real Madrid, Ajax and Inter Milan man as a player who can significantly improve his current ranks.
The Premier League champions are currently 13 points adrift of leaders Arsenal and occupy a lowly ninth position, with their dysfunctional midfield a major cause of their woes.
Sneijder has a release clause of around £13m, and is thought to be open to joining a club in one of the continent’s top divisions after being urged to do so by Holland coach Louis van Gaal in a bid to boost his chances of playing in the 2014 World Cup.
