No thanks, united should definitely pass on him. Mata and Kagawa are currently better than him.

@macca0507> I disagree on him being overrated though. He was brilliant in 2010 season with Inter. They won the treble including beating Peps Barca for the CLs. Then he lead the Dutch to the WC finals (putting in fantastic performances), where the Dutch lost to Spain. His issues has been that part of his prime was wasted sitting on Madrids bench. Now he is a shell of the player he was. He just was average at this WC.

If Schneider joins United I'd expect him to receive the ball more often in deeper positions and play accurate quick passes to the likes of Rooney, Van Persie, Januzaj etc, think like Michael Carrick but with attacking sense. I think he'd be a great addition to the Premier league and if the likes of Tom Cleverly could learn from him it'd be for United and England's benefit...

I know it won't happen but John Giles made a valid point yesterday evening. He would be much more effective playing deeper than he played last night. He's not strong enough to play in traffic and the deeper role could prolong his career and play to his strengths as a creative midfielder.

Sneijder is without a doubt one of the most over-rated footballers there has ever been. Bags of potential when he was young and up and coming but seemed to make the big money moves and been no more than a passenger

On an unrelated note, Ross McCormack cost £11M.

I think it's important to understand the difference tournament football and a league campaign. True, Sneijder hasn't played that well in Brazil but Messi hasn't exactly set the world on fire either. Tiredness and an inopportune loss-of-form can make great players look poor in a short period of time. Conversely, success in a month-long tournament can often be down to luck or an 'aligning of the stars' (see Greece in Euro 2004). Fabio Capello has shown himself to be very limited in tournament football terms - despite a great record in League football/qualifying campaigns. I'd also suggest that some of Van Gaal's curve-ball selections this summer are representative of his understanding that tournament football is a short, sharp experience where it can pay to gamble on unorthodox tactics. I somehow doubt he'll be quite as left-field over a Premier League campaign. That said, I think Sneijder might be a luxury player these days who would often frustrate and only occasionally delight...

I don't see how you can think he's had a poor tournament, I was impressed by him up until last night.

he'll end up at united although his pay packet may be an issue for the roonster. they can compete between them to see who can get the most out of the club while delivering consistent 6/10 performances

A very obvious dangling of the line. No thanks, I have always thought him good but if forced to choose between him and Rooney, it would be Rooney every day of the week. No questions asked........

Chelsea need another attacking midfielder, just in case the 15 they already have get injured

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
