Former Manchester United star David Beckham says Manchester United should sign Dutch International Wesley Sneijder.

Manchester United are yet to fill the void left by Paul Scholes’ decision to quit football and have been linked heavily to land Inter Milan’s star performer Wesley Sneijder. However, Sir Alex has stood firm on the claims that the club will not buy any other player this summer after signing Phil Jones, Ashley Young and David DeGea.

Beckham, who returned to Old Trafford to play in Gary Neville's testimonial match, will play against them in pre-season match

Speaking to Mirror Sport, Beckham said:

“Scholesy is such a great talent and he will be missed. To replace Scholesy, they’re going to have to get someone special. There’s a lot of talk about Sneijder and he’s such a talented player, I’m sure he would fit right into a Manchester United team.  He could do a job there, without a doubt.”

Beckham is all set to face his former club in New Jersey on Wednesday as theMLS All-stars take on Manchester United and he has backed all the new signings, especially David de Gea.

“I’ve seen them bring in the young keeper, with great experience of playing in La Liga. He’s got a huge space to fill because [Edwin] van der Sar was so successful, but I don’t think that will be a problem. He’s played at a good level in Spain and let’s hope he does well because United have always had good keepers.”

While pals Scholes and Gary Neville have quit, Beckham has hinted he will carry on with the LA Galaxy. He said:

“This is the last year in my contract but I enjoy playing in this league, for this franchise, with the players we have and with Bruce Arena as my manager.”
