Published Add your comment

Wesley Sneijder has confirmed he would like to join Manchester United and suggested "unofficial talks" have taken place with the Barclays Premier League champions.

Inter Milan star Sneijder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer and revealed at the weekend he could be sold for the right price.

Asked if he was keen on a move to Manchester United, Sneijder said in a video interview with, translated by ESPN soccernet: "Yes, but Manchester United haven't made an official approach yet. There have been unofficial talks, there have been contacts, but then there are always contacts. I have contacts with everybody."

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has denied making a contract offer to Sneijder, who insisted it was more likely he would stay with Inter than leave before the transfer window closes.

He said: "The situation is that I am now an Inter player, and chances are that I will still be that come August 31. There is also a chance I could leave.

"That isn't really down to me but the club. I think Inter have been very clear: if a good offer comes in, they have to let me go.

"They don't want to lose me but there is a chance they will let me go.

"If something crosses my path, I have enough time to make my decision."

Sneijder was speaking before Holland's friendly against England on Wednesday was cancelled.

Asked whether he was planning to stay behind in the UK for talks, he said: "I don't know."
