However, Koeman has now ruled out the possibility of adding the Dutch star to his side because his agent, who also represents Sneijder, advised him that the cost of the move is too high for the club.

He said: “I’m interested, but I know we can’t pay him.

“There’s nothing in it, and I know that because his agent is my agent.”

Apart from the interest from United, Manchester City are also said to be lining up a move to sign him in January should he decide to leave the Turkish giants.
