Manchester United have reportedly agreed terms with Wesley Sneijder, according to The Mirror.
The Dutch playmaker's current wages stand at £190,000 with his club Inter Milan, but chief executive David Gill has reportedly offered a deal to match those demands.
United have been searching for a replacement for Paul Scholes, and with Luka Modric and Samir Nasri set to join Chelsea and Manchester City, Sneijder appears to be the obvious target to succeed the Old Trafford legend.
A deal for Sneijder is expected to smash United transfer record, with £35 million being reported as the sum to bring the World Cup finalist to the Premier League.
With terms agreed, United are expected to lodge an official bid for Sneijder in the next 48 hours.
Sneijder is expected to join Phil Jones, David De Gea and Ashley Young at United this summer, following a spending spree that is expected to top £80 million.
