The People says United may launch a £12million January bid for Holland star Sneijder.
The Premier League champs apparently failed with a £6m approach for the Galatasaray playmaker during the summer.
The Turkish club's sporting director Bulent Tulun said: "Sneijder received an indirect offer from Manchester United, but it was not accepted."
Old Trafford boss David Moyes could now double his offer.
