LA Galaxy star David Beckham feels Manchester United should buy Wesley Sneijder to replace former teammate Paul Scholes. The ex-England skipper knows all about Inter Milan's Dutch schemer, who replaced him at Real Madrid.

He said: "Sneijder is such a talented player.

"He's a great guy and I'm sure he'd fit right into a Manchester United team. He could do a job there, without a doubt."

Becks, 36, says United need one of the best to fill the boots of Paul Scholes, who retired in May.

He added: "Scholesy is such a great talent and he will be missed.

"They're going to have to get someone special."
