Louis van Gaal is taking nothing for granted at World Cup

Wesley Sneijder says he would consider a move to Manchester United and claimed that no Netherlands player would turn down Louis van Gaal.

Sneijder, in Brazil as part of Van Gaal's Netherlands squad, would be tempted to leave current club Galatasaray if Van Gaal were to make him an offer when he takes over at Old Trafford after the World Cup.

"[Van Gaal] trains his players very hard and always expects the highest standards," Sneijder said. "I am happy at Galatasaray. I have established myself at the club and have settled in.

"However, if Van Gaal were to make me an offer I would have to at least consider it. Nobody from the Netherlands can simply reject Van Gaal."

Van Gaal will take up his new role as United manager after the Netherlands' campaign and Sneijder says the new boss will not put up with poor performances from the former Premier League champions.

"In the Netherlands Van Gaal is something like the head teacher of a school. Not everyone is lucky enough to get into his good books," Sneijder said.
