Manchester United are reportedly on red alert following reports of Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder being unhappy and wanting to leave Turkish side Galatasaray in January.

The 30-year-old midfielder, who completed a €7.5 million switch from Inter Milan to Galatasaray in the summer of 2013, is believed to be keen on leaving his current side as they have reportedly been unable to pay his wages on a number of occasions due financial issues in the club.

The Turkish side are also reportedly ready to sell Sneijder for a transfer fee in the region of £9million in January so that they can ease some of their financial burden.

It is understood that the former Real Madrid midfielder's agent has already started looking at some possible destinations for his client.

And according to the Daily Mail, Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal, who is a big fan of Sneijder, having worked with him with the Dutch national team, is ready to pounce on the opportunity.

The Red Devils, however, will not be able to secure Sneijder's signature that easily as Southampton are also reportedly interested in the Dutchman.

Meanwhile, former Manchester United defender Gary Neville feels that the Red Devils should immediately hand out a new contract to David De Gea, who according to him, is one of the best goalkeepers in the history of the English Premier League.

The former Atletico Madrid goalkeeper played a big hand in Manchester United's recent Premier League win over bitter rivals Liverpool, making a lot of excellent saves to prevent the Reds from scoring.

And Neville feels that De Gea comes in the same category as some of best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

"I'm measuring him against (Edwin) Van der Sar, (Peter) Schmeichel, David Seaman - probably the three best goalkeepers in Premier League history," Neville told Sky Sports. "We're seeing a huge improvement. He's always been a great shot stopper, he's been doing that since day one."

The former England defender feels that Manchester United are currently third in the Premier League due to the efforts of De Gea, and the Red Devils need to extend his stay at Old Trafford.

"He's winning Manchester United match after match, which is what I would expect from a Manchester Untied goalkeeper," he added.

"It's fantastic performances, great goalkeeping and Manchester United have got to get this lad signed up because he's a big, big player for them now."
