Anyone out there remember the last gasp transfer window signing of Dimitar Berbatov?

If I recall rightly the deal was done with seconds to spare as those in charge of these kinds of things rushed around Old Trafford, in the media spotlight, desperately trying to get all the loose ends tied up before the deadline passed.

Does anyone get the impression that something similar could happen with Wesley Sneijder?

All summer long the prospect of Sneijder coming to Old Trafford has been generating column inches.

Yesterday the inference was that the Dutch midfielder was prepared to lower his wage demands to secure a deal, today that deal looks as far away as ever, if the words of a certain Massimo Moratti are to be believed.

The Inter Milan big-wig appears to have no intention of allowing Sneijder to go anywhere, even more so that another of his stars – Samuel Eto`o – looks ready to join the Russian revolution with the big spending Russian club, Anzhi Makhachkala.

Talking to the media, Moratti had this to say,

“Sneijder was untouchable before the situation with Eto`o and he has become even more so now Eto`o could leave.”

“Sneijder is going nowhere.”


So, the big question being – should United continue to pursue the Dutchman or is now the time to walk away and possibly look elsewhere?
