Man Utd seek Nike help to get Sneijder deal over line

Manchester United are seeking assistance from sponsors to help get a deal for Wesley Sneijder over the line. The People says United were trying to rescue their £35million bid for Sneijder last night - with club sponsors Nike believed to be involved in negotiations.

The sticking point is still Sneijder's wage and image-rights deal, thought to total around £250,000 a week.

United have a team of tax, finance and legal experts working to find a solution - and Nike have emerged as possible major players in the move for the Inter Milan star.
