Sneijder happy at Galatasaray; Moyes may recall Lingard, Powell

Galatasaray No. 10 Wesley Sneijder has revealed he has no reason to leave the Turk Telekom Arena.

Galatasaray No. 10 Wesley Sneijder has revealed he has no reason to leave the Turk Telekom Arena amid ongoing speculation linking him with a January move to Manchester United, according to Sky Sports.

The Holland international, who joined Galatasaray from Inter Milan in a deal worth €7.5 million in January, has been on fine form for the Turkish champions this season, fueling rumours suggesting he could leave for Old Trafford in the New Year.

United are in the market for a world-class talent in central midfield and could move for Sneijder instead of Athletic Bilbao ace Ander Herrera in an attempt to save approximately €20 million.

However, Sneijder, 29, has insisted he is ‘very happy’ with life in Turkey, while revealing he has yet to receive an offer from abroad.

“You would know better than me if I received any offers. Up to now there are no offers,” Sneijder told Beyaz TV, as per Sky Sports.

“There are rumours about me in every transfer window. I look forward to the end of transfer windows so people stop talking about me.

“I’m very happy here with the team and the fans and I have no reason to leave.

“This type of news always happens. You just need to wait until the end of the window.”

Sneijder, 27, has bagged six goals in 17 appearances in all competitions for Galatasaray this season.

Moyes may recall Lingard, Powell

Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed he could bolster his current squad by recalling Jesse Lingard, Nick Powell and Ryan Tunnicliffe from Birmingham City, Wigan Athletic and Ipswich Town respectively.

Earlier this month, Moyes hinted that United could splash the cash when the transfer window re-opens in January, but the Scot has now moved to play down the arrival of any big signings at Old Trafford.

When asked about potential arrivals in January, Moyes said: “We’ll try but I’m quite actively looking at our own boys.

“The likes of Jesse Lingard, Nick Powell and Ryan Tunnicliffe – the boys who are out on loan – they are the ones I am making sure I keep my eye on because they are the future.

“They are the ones who are part of the club and have been in the system so we are certainly keeping our eyes on all the boys who have been out on loan and hoping that they might be able to come back and help us if we need it in January as well.”

United will travel to the KC Stadium to take on English Premier League newcomers Hull City on Thursday, 26 December.

Hull City (11/2); Manchester United (4/7); Draw (16/5)
