Inter prepare to open Sneijder talks with United

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan are set to open talks with Manchester United over the proposed transfer of Wesley Sneijder, reports in Italy have claimed.

The 27-year-old's future at the San Siro is once again the subject of fervent speculation amid suggestions Inter are prepared to cash-in on the Dutchman during the transfer window.

And now, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter sporting director Marco Branca will shortly travel to England in order to discuss a potential deal with Manchester United.

The Barclays Premier League champions appeared to be set to capture Sneijder during the summer, but failed to agree a fee for his signature with Inter.

The Italian giants, however, will reportedly accept £25 million for Sneijder, which could tempt Sir Alex Ferguson to renew his interest in the midfielder.

Ferguson is said to be keen to bring midfield reinforcements to Old Trafford following a number of injuries, although has cooled suggestions he will spend big in January.

"The reason there may not be many big signings in January is because the players clubs want are not available," he told the official Manchester United website.

"To be honest with you, who would want to sell their best player in January"

United have also been linked with a move for Benfica star Nicolas Gaitan, who says he is flattered to be on the radar of the Red Devils.
