REVEALED: Man City chiefs meet with Sneijder agent

Manchester City have entered talks with Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder.The Sun says Manchester United boss Louis Van Gaal is desperate to bolster his injury-stricken squad in the new year and is understood to be interested in a deal to bring his Dutch compatriot to Old Trafford.

However his hopes of landing Sneijder may have been dealt a blow, with reports suggesting the 30-year-old is in talks to join United's local rivals City.

Sneijder's agent, Guido Albers, held talks with City bosses in Manchester yesterday in an attempt to strike a deal.

Turkish giants Gala are in the midst of a financial crisis and are willing to accept a cut-price £9m for their star midfielder.

Sneijder's current contract contains a £12m release clause - but Gala will allow him to leave for much less in a bid to get him off the wage bill.
