Former Manchester United playmaker Paul Scholes comments on speculation surrounding Wesley Sneijder.

Manchester United veteran Paul Scholes has praised “brilliant” Wesley Sneijder and predicted that the Inter star will be pursued by a number of clubs.

The Dutch international, who has been strongly linked with a transfer to the Premier League champions, has refused to rule out a move away from the San Siro.

Former Red Devil Scholes insists that the 27-year-old would be a welcome addition at any football club.

"Yes, Sneijder's brilliant," Scholes told MUTV.

"He's been brilliant for the last year or so with Inter Milan and Holland. I don't think it probably worked out as well as he would have liked at Real Madrid but he's a top player.

"I'm sure there's a lot of clubs who will be after him if he is available."

United chief executive David Gill recently revealed that the club were trying to lure one more player to Old Trafford.
