City ‘not interested’ in United £30m target – report

Published Add your comment

Manchester City have said they are not interested in Wesley Sneijder, according to Metro, with Manchester United still reportedly chasing the star for a possible January move.

Sneijder has starred for Inter Milan since the Dutchman signed to the club in 2009, and he has attracted attention from numerous clubs as a result.

Manchester United in particular have been linked to Sneijder, but a move in summer never eventuated, with a number of reasons, including his sky high wages of £200,000 a week, being touted to explain why he didn’t head to Old Trafford.

But now that Inter Milan are planning a spending spree in January, the club are said to be sounding out clubs for the £30 million rated star, and while Arsenal and United seem interested, City have insisted that they are ‘not interested’ in Sneijder’s signature.

While United are hoping to boost their squad after taking a 6-1 beating by their cross town rivals last weekend, Roberto Mancini has quite the opposite problem, with too many big stars on the bill. The Citizens’ manager is reportedly not wanting to rock a boat that is already full of big egos with Sneijder’s purchase.
