If rumors are to be believed then English champions Manchester United have lost out on their attempt to bring in Arsenal’s French midfielder Samir Nasri and Dutchman Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan before the start of the new season.

United’s chief executive David Gill has sparked the rumors by saying all potential deals are currently dead. United was previously pursuing both Nasri and Sneijder to bolster the team’s midfield.

United Manager Sir Alex Ferguson was expected to bring both the players to the club following the release of Owen Hergreaves, who is now a free agent, and the retirement of United great Paul Scholes at the end of last season.

The club was thought to have placed a bid for Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri whose contract ends in 2012. Now the Frenchman may continue with the Gunners or move to Manchester City. Inter Milan’s Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder was also linked to United earlier this week.

Gill said that the club did not progress on the Sneijder move and is not doing anything about it at the moment and so they are all dead, according to an ESPN report.
