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.

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?

  31. TK says:

    Wesley sneijder is better of the two.

  32. samuel efe says:

    modric the option no doubt.

  33. Jimmy Fung says:

    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.

  34. jonja says:

    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

  35. olamide says:

    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

  36. Big boyy!! says:

    I’d take Wesly any day!!! But to be honest, I wouldn’t say no to a double signing £65m for both ;)

  37. umar hassan funtua says:

  41. Caylebnoni says:

    Sneijer is d best or both

  44. opus michael says:

  45. opus michael says:

    modric knows wat it takes 2 b in a PLE we need him much

  46. Noodles says:

    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.

  47. jordan scot says:

    wesley’s time for us has passed…..All we want and All we are saying is give us MODRIC

  48. Noodles says:

    Also sell Anderson, Bebe, Macheda,

  49. thaboh says:

    Modric is 26

  50. John paul says:

    I lov modric but Sneijder is better than him i ll like 2 see sniejder

  51. a.nal says:


  52. Dan says:

    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.

  53. pheezee says:

    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

  54. Fabian says:

    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

  55. ajayi dapson says:

    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.

  56. Galib says:

    Considering the age of the two, modric luca will be better 4 utd.

  57. Topsye says:

    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.

  58. Richard says:

    neither one is worth their asking price!

  59. Aduagba .l.hameed says:

    i prefer modric bcos is young.he has power &it wil take longtime b4 he can get injure.

  60. topak says:

    I’d prefer modric. If not ajax’s eriksen.

  61. auwal says:

    I prepa modiric

  62. Governor says:

    I prefer snijder,coz of his experience.

  63. Nke Nke Enyi Udoka says:

    I prefer Modric he is the right man 4 Manchester United we need him.

  64. olakunle says:

    modric is d option cos sneider is an injury prone player

  65. dozie says:

    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!!!

  66. 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.

  67. Wayne says:

    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

  68. i prefer wayne rooney

  69. Steve says:

    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.

  70. yk coalman says:

    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 .

  71. Adesoji says:

    I prefer luka modric becos he is still very young!!

  72. william says:

    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!

  73. william says:

    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!

  74. olamide says:

    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.

  75. Wash says:

    Looking at all aspects including the re-sale value, i wud go for Modric. He is the best bargain.

  76. mudiaga kingsley says:

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

  77. Bawa says:

    To me i prefer modric than sneijder cos sneider is injury player.

  78. daddyluke says:

  90. Nurudeen Hamzah Mufa says:

  101. jay says:

    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

  102. sneijder says:

    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

  103. sunskid says:

    i think united need both!!!cus we ar sellin out Anderson and fletcher avin injurry…..singing the two great players will be good.

  104. Quinton says:

    Modric is d man 4 united saf pls buy him leav old man snd
