Wesley Sneijder has opened the door to a transfer to Manchester United by admitting that he would not be able to reject an offer from Louis van Gaal.

The 62-year-old Netherlands head coach is set to take charge at Old Trafford after the World Cup and is looking to bolster his midfield options ahead of the new campaign.

If Van Gaal were make me an offer I would have to at least consider it

And although Sneijder insists that he is happy at Galatasaray, the 30-year-old – who was linked with the Red Devils last summer – would consider his options if Van Gaal made an attempt to sign him.

“In the Netherlands Van Gaal is something like the head teacher of a school,” said Sneijder. “Not everyone is lucky enough to get into his good books.

“He trains his players very hard and always expects the highest standards.

“I am happy at Galatasaray, I have established myself at the club and have settled in.

“However, if Van Gaal were make me an offer I would have to at least consider it, nobody from the Netherlands can simply reject Van Gaal.”
