Wesley Sniejder is willing to take a £1m pay cut to join Manchester United this January, according to the Mirror.

The Dutch midfielder is reportedly frustrated at Galatasaray following his much celebrated switch from Inter Milan last January. The player is also worried by his chances to play for his country in the 2014 FIFA World Cup and believes that a switch to the Premier League will be better for his career. The midfielder is currently earning a yearly £4m in Turkey and is willing to come down to £3m to expedite the move.

United have been long-term admirers of the midfielder and David Moyes may look to finally swoop in for the 29-year-old given the current state of their midfield. The player will give them some much needed drive through the middle and provide that extra bit of creativity which has been missing in the United ranks. The Dutchman will not be available for United's Champions League clash against the Olympiacos as he is cup tied with the Turkish giants but will be a major addition in their race for the Premier League title.

Meanwhile, Danny Welbeck has revealed that he is willing to make the striker position his own after an injury to Robin van Persie which will keep him out till the New Year. The striker scored a brace in their 3-0 win over Aston Villa and is looking to keep his scoring boots on till the end of the season.

"Obviously it is not my decision about where my play. As I have said plenty of times before, I am happy to play for Manchester United in any of the attacking positions. Unfortunately, Robin has got injured, and I might have a chance up front so I am looking to score some goals for United whilst playing as a centre forward. I want to score plenty more goals and I have got a figure in mind," Welbeck told United's Official Website.
