The LA Galaxy midfielder said that his former club would do well to make a move for the 27-year-old, who has impressed with his performances for Inter Milan.
"Sneijder is such a talented player,” he said. "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."
"Scholesy is such a great talent and he will be missed. They're going to have to get someone special."
Sneijder has won the Champions League during his time with Inter and last October signed a five-year contract with the club.
The former Real Madrid midfielder has 78 caps for Holland has scored 21 goals.
