Manchester United are in pole position to capture Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder in January, as reported by the Daily Express.
Juventus have dropped their interest in the Netherlands international, which means Man Utd are leading the charge for the hugely talented midfielder.
Sneijder is expected to leave Galatasaray in January, despite having only joined them two years ago, with the player supposedly unsettled at the Turkish side.
This is, in part, because Sneijder and his teammates have seen Galatasaray struggle to pay the wages, which is bound to unsettle any player at any club.
Juventus were believed to have agreed a fee to bring Sneijder back to Italy, where he made his mark with Inter Milan.
However, reports in Italy today have suggested that their interest in the player has ended.
This means Man Utd, who were heavily linked to him in the summer, are in pole position to bag him.
Sneijder has a release clause of only £16 million, and Louis van Gaal is known to be keen on a reunion.
