United target persuaded to stay until January

Published Add your comment

Manchester United playmaker target Wesley Sneijder is happy to stay at Inter Milan, but could move in January according to Italian journalist Laura Esposto.

The Dutch international was heavily linked with a move away from the San Siro, with Sir Alex Ferguson heavily courting the midfielder throughout the transfer window.

Whilst the player has explained he's happy enough to stay in Serie 'A', Esposto told talkSPORT that a move could still be on the cards.

"Sneijder is going to stay. I think until January, for sure, but then we will see what's going on. He's happy to stay, but he took the Manchester United proposal very seriously. He was thinking to come there," said the journalist.

"They sold Eto'o, even if they now have Forlan. Probably Moratti asked Sneijder to stay, and then he decided to stay.

"But I don't know if he's going to stay in January."

Manchester United added Ashley Young, David de Gea and Phil Jones early in the transfer window, but remained quiet on deadline day after going about their business early this summer.


The young squad have already shown their potential with three straight wins in the Barclays Premier League, and expectation is high for Manchester United to deliver trophies this season.

Whether the addition of Sneijder in January will help Manchester United achieve that is up for debate, but the transfer saga looks set to continue for some time yet.
