Dutch national manager Bert Van Marwijk believes Wesley Sneijder would benefit from a move to the Premier League champions.
The Sunday Mirror reports:
“With Real Madrid and Inter Milan he has already the biggest club names in football on his cv. But Manchester United will be another big step up the international ladder for him.
“Manchester United have a unique playing style and they perform consistently at the highest level.
“Their methods in training, and the way people work at this club with players, are superb.
“This is why it will be a new challenge to Wesley. It will inspire him and it will give him new energy.”
The Dutch boss, who guided his team to the World Cup final last year, also claims that the deal will benefit the Holland team.
He explained: “The United style is much more similar to the Dutch style than Inter’s way of playing.
“When Wesley plays for Holland we make sure he gets the ball as soon as possible to his feet. Much quicker than Inter try that.
“It means he can have a goal attempt much quicker or can give a decisive pass.
“In Italy he plays in a more sitting role, and he is facing six defenders all the time.
“The control we let him take in attack with the Dutch team, I can also see with United.
“I think he would really fit into the midfield perfectly at Old Trafford.”
Whether Sneijder will end up at the Theatre of Dreams is still open to -much- debate, but despite some fans expressing misgivings about whether he’s really needed, the Dutch coach certainly believes he’s a good fit.
