Man United long term target extends stay at current club

Manchester United reported target Wesley Sneijder has ended speculation surrounding his future by signing a new deal with Galatasaray, reports the Daily Express.

The Dutchman worked with Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal at international level as the Oranje finished third at the 2014 World Cup.

He had been linked with a switch to Old Trafford for a reunion with his former boss, along with a shock move to Southampton previously.

However, the 31-year old has committed his future to the Turkish titans, signing a new deal to keep there until 2018.

The former Real Madrid and Inter Milan star joined the Istanbul outfit in 2013 from the San Siro outfit, after previously winning the Champions League under Jose Mourinho.

The playmaker revealed ‘I will be 34 in 2018. I leave football at that time, that is what I planned.’

He started his career at Ajax, and became the second most expensive Dutchman in history at the time when he moved to Real Madrid for around £25m.

The new deal looks to be the last in a glittering career that has seen him win three league titles in Holland, Italy and Spain as well as the Champions League and a raft of individual honours – including UEFA Club Midfielder of the Year in 2010.
