In one of the most protracted transfer sagas of the summer, Wesley Sneijder’s move to Old Trafford has taken so many twists and turns many fans have simply lost interest.

The Dutch maestro has many fans amongst United supporters but there are some who feel we should just keep everything in house and attempt to bring through someone to do his job from our ranks.

Although not an exact match, many fans are happy to see Tom Cleverley be given a chance in midfield, the type he may not have been afforded had we signed Sneijder whilst Sir Alex himself alluded to Sneijder stunting the growth of another burgeoning talent in Paul Pogba.

There is no United fan in the world that isn’t happy to see Sir Alex give youth a chance but the signing of Sneijder has got an endorsement from an unlikely source as former youth coach Eric Harrison has given his approval of United making a move for Sneijder.

Speaking to the MEN, Harrison sang Sneijder’s praise anointing him as the man that could help United and Sir Alex to another treble,

“Last year I’ve got to say the build-up was so slow, painfully slow but so far this season the tempo is up 30 to 40 per cent. It’s brilliant that they’re playing quicker, United-style football.

“In the Community Shield City couldn’t get near us as we were playing our one-twos and keeping our discipline when they tried to bully us.

“We’re not as good as the ‘99 team as yet but the style is similar with so many strikers competing for two positions and the speed of the build up.

“People have a go at Berbatov but I think he has great control and awareness and for me he’s a top player.

“There is plenty of time for Fergie to get another treble but maybe not this season.

“The boss may be coming up to 70 but he will go on until he’s 90.

“Daydreaming I’m thinking that with a controlling midfielder another treble is not beyond the realms of possibility.

“I will probably get a telephone call and a ticking off from Sir Alex Ferguson for saying this but we do need a replacement for that world-class talent Paul Scholes.”

Harrison was then asked who that player could be and with Sneijder’s name suggested he curtly replied; “He’ll do.”

    I don’t think sneijder is d only player we need to defeat barcè. As for barcè they are at their pick like d madrids of ’50s, liverpools of ’80s the milans and some others. We all can see the match against real madrid in the week. They were being matched one to one but the one difference between them was messi. I still belive that on a very very very good day we can beat them. Is not a must we get sneijder. Get mario gotze then be 2 to 3 years time man u will be a force to be reconed wit. Sir alex for life, man u for life.

    lol, though it be a good story on some Utd superstar of the future, Cleverely for one can lead us to the treble, Welbeck, Fabio, Rafa, Jones, Smalling, Pogba, Evans, Nani, Ando, Vida, Rio, Chicharito, Wazza, Young, av….they can all lead us to the treble.

    We don’t need wesley, we never needed wesley and i for one, would rather see Cleverley in our midfield.

    Cleverley, younger, faster, big future, fantastic barca like ability, creative….and most importantly- he loves man united, gona be a far better player then sneijder ever was.

    The saga has become boring. I heard Arsenal have made an offer or Yann M’Villa. I think we should compete for his signature. He is a young defensive midfielder and I think he would be a top signing. We don’t really have a ball winner in that mould and this lad would be a good singing. He fits our policy as well as he is only 20, but is already a French international.

    We have a a very young defensive group in Smalling, Jones, Evans, Rafeal and Fabio. If we could sign M’Villa then we would have that in midfield with Anderson, Cleverley and Pogba. Those four can grow together. Cleverley and Anderson would benefit by having an M’Villa alongside them.
