Manchester United and Chelsea have no chance of signing Wesley Sneijder this summer, according to the player’s agent.

The Dutch playmaker is currently plying his trade in Turkey with Galatasaray, but he has been heavily linked with a move away from the club he only joined in January 2013.

United and Chelsea have been aligned with the experienced passer, with both clubs’ managers having close ties with the 30-year-old.

Louis van Gaal recently coached him during the World Cup and is known to be a fan of his abilities, while Jose Mourinho had him in his squad while at Inter Milan – arguably the finest few years of the player’s career.

However, his agent, Guido Albers, says that despite serious interest Sneijder will not be leaving Gala anytime soon:

“Many clubs have been in contact with me following the World Cup regarding Wesley Sneijder.” he is quoted by The Express.

“However, Sneijder didn’t want a move.

“There were many clubs interested but Manchester United did not make an offer.

“Monaco made a bid but Sneijder wanted to stay at Galatasaray.

“As I have said before, he loves living in Istanbul and has settled into life in the city.

“He is not interested in any other offers.”
