United 'to break bank' for 'ideal' Scholes replacement - reports

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson will request unlimited resources to sign Wesley Sneidjer from Inter Milan, according to The Daily Star.

The summer's long running transfer story has refused to go away, and the latest chapter follows United's 6-1 defeat at the hands of Manchester City, and Ferguson is plotting a reaction.

The Dutch playmaker was heavily linked with a club on a number of occasions, and United are hoping a bid of £40 million will finally help secure their man.


Despite the early season form of Anderson, injury to Tom Cleverley has left a chasm in United's creative ranks, a void the club hope Sneijder could fill.

The only snag in the deal would be that the player has already represented Inter in the Champions League, making him cup tied for the remainder of the competition.

However, United, who have always focused on winning the league ahead of success in Europe, could bring in Sneidjer to help win the Premier League, while leaving the club's seasoned pros to challenge on the continent.
