Manchester United do not expect Wesley Sneijder to sign for the club ahead of the new Premier League campaign. There has been no movement on the prospective purchase of the 27-year-old for months and, with only 19 days remaining until the transfer window closes, the Premier League champions consider the prospect of a move for him to be closed.
Sir Alex Ferguson appears to be convinced he can overcome Arsène Wenger's resistance to losing Samir Nasri and capitalise on the French midfielder's contractual impasse with a speculative £20m offer.
Manchester United are ready to extend Dimitar Berbatov's contract for another two years, according to sources in his native Bulgaria. The 30-year-old's deal expires in the summer of 2012 and though it had been thought United were happy to wait until the summer before extending it, it appears an extension may be agreed within two weeks which would deliver a substantial increase on the striker's £100,000 a week deal. Though Sir Alex Ferguson has declared that Berbatov should deliver away from home as well as at Old Trafford, he has also suggested that he is capable of 30 goals this season.
