Galatasaray insist reported Manchester United target Wesley Sneijder will only be sold if his £15.9million release clause is met.

United have been linked with the midfielder on a number of occasions and it has been suggested they could reignite their interest in the 30-year-old this summer following Louis van Gaal's arrival as manager.

The Old Trafford side have been linked with moves for a number of current Dutch internationals, with Van Gaal set to take charge of the Premier League side after the Netherlands' World Cup campaign is over, and Sneijder is thought to be one of his targets.

Sneijder currently plays for Galatasaray but it is thought he would be open to linking up with Van Gaal at club level and the Turkish giants have admitted that they will only consider offers that match the playmaker's 20million euro [£15.9million] release clause.

Galatasaray president Unal Aysal said: "Wesley Sneijder has a release clause set at 20million euros.

"Any team that give us that money and he wants to go, we can't keep him.

"Legally speaking, we have no right."
