Becks: Sneijder would fit United

David Beckham reckons Wesley Sneijder would "fit right into" Manchester United's side as his former club attempt to replace Paul Scholes.

Former England international Scholes retired at the end of last season, leaving a big void in the centre of the Red Devils' midfield.

And Beckham, who played for the LA Galaxy as they lost to Manchester City 7-6 on penalties on Sunday night, believes Inter Milan's Sneijder - who has been heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford - could be the man to fill it.

He said: "Scholes is the one player they want to replace. He is such a great talent and he will be missed. They're going to have to get someone special.

"There's a lot of talk about Wesley Sneijder. He's such a talented player, a great guy as well. I'm sure he would fit right into a United team."
