De Zeeuw believes Sneijder would be a hit at Man Utd

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is reportedly keen on signing the 25-year-old Inter Milan star.

De Zeeuw told The Sun: “If United sign him he’d be a fantastic asset. The thought of him playing just behind Wayne Rooney is great.

“I can see why people compare him to Scholes in his younger days but Wes can strike a ball equally well with either foot.

“I remember playing against Scholesy and if he was on the edge of the box you’d at least try and get him on his left, which wasn’t quite as strong.

“But Sneijder can hit it just as well with both.”
