Wesley Sneijder has revealed that Manchester United approached him during the latest transfer window but both him and Galatasaray decided to reject the Premier League champions' proposal.
The Dutch international midfielder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford in the latest years and the club's interest in his signing resurfaced in recent times - especially after manager David Moyes failed to secured the services of a playmaker.
Asked about whether United tried to sign him during the latest transfer window Sneijder said: "There were clubs who wanted to sign me like Manchester United but I have no intention of leaving and my club have no intention of letting me go".
"Leaving in January didn't even cross my mind and the club have never told me to leave. There is still a lot to achieve here we are competing in the, League, Turkish Cup and have a chance of beating Chelsea in the Champions League.
"I feel at home here and that's not something you feel everywhere you go," Sneijder told to Turkish press as quoted by FcInterNews.it.
At the same time, Galatasaray Sportive coordinator Bülent Tulun confirmed United's approach.
"Sneijder received an indirect offer from Manchester United but it was not accepted," he said.
The offensive midfielder joined Galatasaray in January 20013 alongside Didier Drogba after they paid just £4m to Inter Milan to secure his services and the Dutchman has got back to his best at Turkey scoring 14 goals and grabbing five assists in 40 appearances.
Moyes was keen on add a midfielder last January to replace Anderson, who move on loan to Fiorentina, and although United were also heavily linked with Bayern Munich star Tony Kroos they finally just got Juan Mata from Chelsea.
