Inter Milan are reportedly prepared to cash-in on Manchester United target Wesley Sneijder during the January transfer window.
The 27-year-old playmaker has frequently been linked with a move away from the San Siro in recent months and speculation surrounding his future shows no sign of abating.
According to The People, Inter 'will sell' Sneijder this month to any club willing to match their £25 million valuation, which will surely alert Manchester United.
Sir Alex Ferguson tried desperately to bring the 27-year-old to Old Trafford during the summer, but United were unable to agree a fee with Inter.
The United boss is reportedly on the lookout for midfield reinforcements during January with Darren Fletcher out for the foreseeble future, while Ferguson is still keen to bring in a replacement for Paul Scholes.
Meanwhile, despite suggestions to the contrary elsewhere, Inter manager Claudio Ranieri maintains he wants to retain the services of Sneijder.
"Sneijder is our crown jewel," said Ranieri. "He is not just a squad member, he is the main man. He has to be the leader of the team.
"I don’t want him to go anywhere. I want him to stay here at Inter. He belongs here in this squad.
"There is still so much room for improvement and more success here."
