Guus Hiddink wants to hijack Wesley Sneijder’s proposed move to Manchester United as the first act of his Chelsea revolution.

The veteran manager’s return to Stamford Bridge is set to be confirmed within days after Turkish ­football chiefs reluctantly accepted his heart was set on London.

But while a wrangle over compensation of £4million to be paid to his current employers Turkey continues and he is still unsure if he wants to go back into full-time club management, Hiddink urged Roman ­Abramovich to swipe Sneijder.

United are confident of landing the Inter Milan schemer for £30million, but that may change if the Holland star feels ­compatriot Hiddink could help him settle in England.

Sneijder’s name emerged as a Chelsea target as Hiddink’s departure from his job as manager of the Turkey national team edged closer.

A Turkish Football Federation insider said: “Chelsea is too good an offer to turn down and the TFF understands this. We’ll understand he’s coached his last Turkey game – as long as Chelsea pay the compensation.”
