Chelsea monitoring Sneijder situation

Published Add your comment

Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder is targeting a summer move to the Premier League, while Chelsea and Manchester City are reported to be monitoring his situation with great interest.

Sneijder has frequently been linked with a move away from the San Siro over the past 12 months, with Old Trafford touted as his most likely destination.

However, according to, Manchester United are now unlikely to be in the race to sign the 27-year-old, and Chelsea and City would appear to be more likely suitors.

Sneijder had the opportunity to leave Inter last month but rejected a switch to Zenit St Petersburg with the ambition of moving to England at the end of the season.

"Sneijder wants to play in England," a source told

"He wanted to move to Manchester United last summer but that didn't happen because of the money and various other reasons.

"He likes the Premier League, he likes the atmosphere in the stadiums and believes his game would be ideally suited to English football."

It remains to be seen, however, whether or not Chelsea will spend big during the summer transfer window with the new manager likely to have their wings clipped somewhat with the Financial Fair Play regulations approaching.
