However, the Netherlands international’s agent insists that there is no truth behind the reports and says Sneijder is happy at the Turkish club.

“The rumours about Manchester United are not true,” Guido Albers said.

“Neither Sneijder or I have had any contact with anyone from the Red Devils and i have heard nothing about a transfer involving Van Gaal.

“It’s just rumours. Sneijder loves Istanbul and his family now feels at home.”

Speaking last week, Sneijder admitted that he would find it difficult to turn down an offer to work under Van Gaal at Old Traffod.

“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,” said Sneijder.
