Inter resign to losing United playmaker target – report

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan are targeting Lazio midfielder Hernanes in a bid to find a replacement for Wesley Sneijder, according to

Sneijder admitted yesterday that for the right price he would be for sale, telling reporters: "All I know is that Inter need money and that I'm for sale if the right offer comes in.


"I have five days off after the international friendly against England [which has now been cancelled due to the London riots]. I expect clarity on my future by then.

"I can be very brief about the interest from Manchester United and City: I haven't spoken with either of those two clubs, so I can't really say much about my future at the moment."

City have insisted that they have no interest in Sneijder, leaving United in the winning seat to land their favoured playmaker.

And while Inter have continually hinted at a possible move for Sneijder, United have continually insisted that there are issues involved in the possible transfer of the Dutchman. These issues are said to include wage demands of over £200,000 per week and Sneijder’s wife not wanting to leave Italy.

But after the playmaker’s comments, and Inter targeting Hernanes to replace Sneijder, all point to the fact that a move to United for the star is looking more likely than ever.
