Wesley Sneijder has given a week time to decide whether to join Manchester United or not, reported Mirror Football. Inter have held informal talks with United over a fee, and while they haven’t yet finalised terms, they have indicated they are prepared to allow the midfielder to leave. They have given Ferguson the permission to meet the player and the paper reports that talks will continue with the player’s representatives during the week.
It has been reported that it is up to the player now whether to take the offer which will cause a significant pay cut to move to Old Trafford. The guardian has quotes Ferguson saying: “If he [Sneijder] wants to come, he must accept our contract offer. If not, we have other options in mind. We’re done talking.”

Berbatov exit talk.
Devastated Manchester United forward Dimitar Berbatov could be set to exit the club before this transfer window closes, according to Eurosport. There were reports that Paris St-Germain- assembling a new look squad- is keen to sign the Bulgarian. United manager Sir Alex Ferguson when asked by a French television journalist if Berbatov could play with the Paris club replied “Yes, that’s possible.” The manger was talking after a Man Utd XI suffered a 2-8 defeat against Marseille in a match organised by former Marseille goalkeeper Pascal Olmeta for children’s charity.
This come after David Gill, the United chief executive, said at the weekend that the club had never considered moving on the club’s record signing. He had also reminded that the striker is not essentially on the last year of the contract. He said: “People keep telling me he’s in the final year of his contract but there is an option on the club’s side to extend Dimitar’s contract by another year. We can do it whenever we want, there are no conditions around it and that means, in effect, he has two years to go.”
Manchester United new signing Ashley Young sounded confident that he can become a success at Old Trafford thereby proving the critics wrong. He told Inside United: “Some people said I couldn’t [play at United’s level], but they also said I couldn’t play for England. That doesn’t bother me, though – I’ve got confidence in myself to know that I can do it.”
The 26-year-old winger said that he had only one destination in mind after knowing about the United interest. “There were other clubs interested but as soon as I heard about the interest from United I just wanted to get here and sign. I knew it was the right club.”
