Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson remains keen on Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder.

The Daily Star says Fergie has yet to replace Paul ­Scholes following his retirement in the summer.

He failed to secure a deal for Holland and Inter Milan star Sneijder, although he remains a top target of the Scot, even though he would cost £40m.

Fergie admits he has several targets in mind but reckons that signing reinforcements in the January transfer window will be a tall order.
