Manchester United plan swoop for 'world-class' star

MANCHESTER UNITED are still planning to sign one more 'world-class' player this summer.
Old Trafford boss Alex Ferguson has been heavily linked with a move for Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder.
And United chief executive David Gill hinted the Dutch star is on the club's shortlist.
He said: "We've made three signings and we're looking at one more player to bring in.
"Nothing's happening nothing imminent on that at the moment but we'll see what happens when we get home from our tour of America.
"There'll still be 31 days of the transfer window to see if anything develops.
"But I'm not working on anything at the moment, in that respect."
United are lacking a creative midfielder after Paul Scholes' retirement at the end of last season.
That is believed to be the area which Gill and Ferguson are looking to strengthen.
Gill added: "We've been looking at a particular position and two or three players in that position.
"The important point to understand, and Alex has made it clear, is that we need someone who's going to improve the quality of the squad.
"We've got a great squad and to get into that squad you need to be a world-class player.
"There's no point, if you can't get the players you want, in buying someone for the sake of buying someone.
"But you never know there's often movement in August.
"I'm not saying I'm working on anything specific because I'm not but that situation could change quickly when we get back to Carrington."
