Transfer Rater: Marquinhos to Man United


Sneijder: Van Gaal bid hard to refuse

Netherlands coach Louis van Gaal insists his side aren't taking Australia lightly ahead of their clash on Wednesday.

Wesley Sneijder has said he would find it hard to reject a move to Manchester United if new manager Louis van Gaal wanted to sign him.

The midfielder, a target for Sir Alex Ferguson during the final years of his reign at Old Trafford, is a key member of Van Gaal's Netherlands squad and won his 100th cap in the 5-1 thrashing of World Cup holders Spain.

Sneijder, 30, the joint top scorer at the 2010 World Cup, when he scored five goals, and a Champions League winner at Inter Milan, has spent the last 18 months at Galatasaray.

Speaking at a news conference prior to the Netherlands' game against Australia, he said: "I am happy at Galatasaray, I have established myself at the club and have settled in.

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

"In the Netherlands, Van Gaal is something like the head teacher of a school. Not everyone is lucky enough to get into his good books. He trains his players very hard, and always expects the highest standards."
