Sneijder 'will be sold' in January - reports

Published 1 Comments

Inter Milan are reportedly ready to cash-in on Manchester United target Wesley Sneijder in January.

According to talkSPORT, the Dutch midfielder 'will be sold' in the New Year in order to fund a spending spree by new Inter boss Claudio Ranieri.

The Italian giants are alleged to be tracking German whizkid Mario Gotze and Brazilian duo Casemiro and Lucas da Silva - a trio of signings that could set them back £70 million.

But Inter are said to be hoping the sale of Sneijder - possibly to United - will fund at least half of that amount.


Sneijder, 27, was constantly linked with a move to Old Trafford during the summer as Sir Alex Ferguson scoured the market for a successor to Paul Scholes.

However, the two clubs were never able to agree a fee for Sneijder, and Ferguson has since relied on the likes of Tom Cleverley and Anderson to fill the void left by Scholes.

The United legend retired in May but has rebuffed suggests that he needs to be replaced by Ferguson.
