The story is too old to be commented.

I don't usually submit transfer rumour stories but articles about this deal have been coming in thick and fast around the net (and papers) in the last few days that its hard not to get excited.
What a signing this will be, it will conclude the most perfect summer of signings I've seen United do in a while. As Fergie said there will never be another another Paul Scholes but Sneijder is a worthy replacement.

As you said, this should have been categorized as a rumour and not news. No one reported??


I was going to put it as a rumour but the way The Daily Mirror and others were reporting this story, I thought it was a done deal, I assumed we'd get confirmation from Man Utd and BBC after a few hours. Guess nothing is credible without a proper quote.

Everything come from mirror it always been rumors, unless you hear something from Skysport, BBC, or the Guarding with quotes then it not rumors

He will definatly improve United one of the best midfilders around only Xavi and Iniesta are better in my opinion

One Dutch Retire another one come, hope that will become a reality, Dutch players usually Shine at United, maybe not Jordi Cruijff but he is still decent enough. Come on Gill make it happen!!
