Manchester United – Another bid for Dutch master?

Manchester United – Another bid for Dutch master?



The Dutch will be waking up to a collective hangover today after defeat to Germany last night severely limited their chances of progressing to the knockout stages of EURO 2012.

It was a fantastic game with little to decide between the sides. Ultimately, the Germans were more ruthless in front of goal and that’s why they won the match. But it was a reminder of just how good the Euros can be.

Despite Holland’s bad results at this tournament there has been a stiff reminder for Sir Alex Ferguson of just how much Wesley Sneijder can bring to the party. Sure, he was unable to rouse his team last night, or against Denmark, but everything that he does just smacks of class.

Football Advisor

He’s 28 now and it seems that the Sneijder package is just a little too rich for Manchester United, but if Sir Alex Ferguson did fancy a slightly expensive splurge on his midfield then surely he need look no further than this Dutch master.

So, United fans, would you take Modric or Sneijder if you had to pick one?



  1. i tink wesley sneijder he’s just d perfect player united need,cos he av al d experince we need to reclaim d title n he’s more crative n skilful dan luka modric

  2. do you really need to ask, modric is a good player but sneijder is in a class of his own if fergie is going to pay 25million plus sneijder is the man.

  3. i prefer modric because he is already in english footbal and would not start learning the styles of play in play in Engkland which Sneider woulod do if he comes to Mancvhester United

  4. Modric for me simply cos he’s 2 years younger and has played pl footy for a while now and is not on the treatment table every week

  5. sneijder has never played premier league football, he would not perform the way he does with manchester utd.. modric is the man who will do us good, but fergie knows what he’s doing.. long live Sir Alex Ferguson!

  6. I simply prefer Sneijder. To me, he is more than good unlike Modric who have not yet acquire all the experience needed in Champions League. I go for Sneijder.

  7. Both are Good,but prefer Modric, he is already in EPL,So go 4 him and have a union of Kagawa,Modric and Rooney

  8. I prefer snijder bcos of the charpion league experience,bt modric is a world class player to.I wil go for snijder.hamuscant.

  9. In my opinion manchester united must sign these two players….modric and sneijder they can make a impact in united midfield..!

  10. I prefer luka modric because is already playing in england, he understand the style and conditions but wesley is old and can get injury at anytime

  11. There’s no denying Snjeider is world class, but he has outrageous wage depends on top of the hefty transfer fee.

    Modric is 2 years younger than Snjeider, is seasoned in Premier League Football and would also be a good compliment to new signing Shinji Kagawa. Modric plays a deep, playmaking midfielder, where as Kagawa plays in a more advanced attacking role. It would wonderful midfield dynamic.

  12. Both are good players,any one modric or snaider in OT it will be perfect for the club,but in future days,who can play many years,Modric is the best

  13. Big name is useless in EPL think about dis, no matter who Ʋ are Modric is proper 4 UTD cos he is younger, is playing EPL, he is not on treatment table every week and he is still eager to win trophies. Don’t think twice pls

  14. i’ll take modric cos he’s younger than sneijder n he knw how to play fully in premier league and in man united. Long live man united

  15. i think mordric is d player man united cul’d go 4 than sudiader as far d pre leag is consan. Sam kampala uganda.

  16. Out of the two then schnieder.

    However what they should do id sell Nani, buy Bale, Rodwell, Powell and the young Chilian fella hernandez or something.

  17. I would not buy any of the two. There are too expensive. They cant change a game and lack dribbling skills and pace. I would buy a young player who has the pace with energy and some tricks to turn a player.

  18. talking of sneidjer he is creative,has experience nd an utility playmaker but modric he is creative but less experience nd fixd player so letz go 4 bth preferably sneidjer

  19. For me egg is expires Wesley snijdar is the man we need dat midfild he have long pass making short also a play maker.but if our father sir Ferguson can sing two off them i promis all the manu fans we cant go nest session witout three trof,i dnt want manu march to give me h.b.p again up united

  20. Modric †☺ ♍ξ Ĭ§ more preferable because he Ĭ§ already in the system,unlike wesley that has only champions league xperience and man~utd я not ready †☺ sign a wasteful player unlike others.

  21. I prefer Modric becz is more creative and young he also know what it take to be playing in EPL pls SAF go for him.

  22. Wesley Sneijder is de man for MAN UTD, without there be know, Rooney. He is de best midfielder i have ever seen and he also a good play-maker.I think he is de man for us!!!

  23. Its difficult to choose because they are both world class players with the ability to play for any team in the world, i think it all boils down to who is the best value to the club that needs him. in this situation even though i think the dutchman may very slightly out perform Modric in terms of talent, i feel he Modric would be my choice, if his fee and wages are within what is regarded as acceptable, plus he has already spent a number of years in the Epl.

  24. I prefer luka modric I watch him against Italy he is world class player sniejder is a work class player also but modric is younger and would fit straight in united team

  25. It has to come down to what position do we need filled more, isnt Snjieder a more advanced middie while Modric can play CM as well as CAM, We recently got Kagawa and he can play CAM quite well (in addtion to left/right wing i think). So Modric may be more useful and he is already accustomed to the English style and could catch up immediately.

    Would not say no to Snjieder if hes willing for the right wages, Modric wages would be half of what Snjieder expects. Also Snjieder is older.

  26. Modris nt sneijder, cos we already hv injury plagued players. Lyk anderson,cleverly,fletcher. It ‘ll b silly if we buy sneijder . MODRIC/KAGAWA a̶̲̥̅n̶̲̥̅̊d̶̲̥̅̊ a defensive midfield I̶̲̥̅̊s̶̲̥̅̊ all but we need .

  27. Modric has proven he can play well in the EPL. Sneijder is 2 years older, more fraigile and often looses his temper.
    Modric is better for ManU but [nly at a reasonable price!

  28. Modric has proven he can play well in the EPL. Sneijder is 2 years older, more fraigile and often looses his temper.
    Modric is better for ManU but only at a reasonable price!

  29. Modric is perfect for United. Think about this, he has been playing EPL, he is younger, like thaboh said; he is not on treatment table every week. He’ll be more committed because he is still eager to win trophies, unlike †ђξ other man.

  30. i prefer modric to senjider with his epl exeperiene. With no resonable doulbt. Modric his 26 he has more level than so call senjider

  31. no doubt I prefer Modric!! he is younger and have experiences in EPL, and not the old guy with no heart to get trophy1!!!!!

  32. Sneijder is one of d best midfielder in d world. I think man utd need modric,cus he is younger dan sneijder,secondly modric has being in EPL 4 sum years now,so he knows everything about epl…4 me, i go 4 modric.

  33. Sir alex ferguson should consider that oppurtunity come but one’s . Since both of them are availlable now. Modric & snj. United need 2 bust dat mildfild

  34. utd missed the boat when they didnt get sneijder as part of the ronaldo deal from real. real sold him to inter for next to nothing. utd could of had him then as part of deal. not only would it made sense as he is world class. they would have also had him at the years before his prime

  35. i think player like Rooney needs good attacking midfielder like Wesley sneijder N its not about that he never played in epl its about what experience he got anys i think if we get Sneider we can win alot of cups c’me on guys pick Sneijder

  36. I prefer luka modrich,he is better thn sniejer,the momentum of the games we saw in the euro of 2012 sniejar he is ful of disappontment
