Manchester United are once again being linked with a bid for Wesley Sneijder.

ESPN claims the Red Devils are monitoring the Dutch international’s situation closely, and that manager Sir Alex Ferguson is ‘strongly considering’ another bid for the player.

The website also suggests that Luis Nani could leave Old Trafford, moving in the opposite direction as part of the deal for the 28-year-old Inter Milan star.

Manchester United came close to signing the player in the summer of 2011, but the deal fell through after ‘financial demands’ could not be met.

Sneider’s situation at the San Siro has worsened dramatically in the last 18 months however, with the 90-cap international stalling on contract negotiations and phased out of the first team.

"Sneijder isn't playing because the coach doesn't think he's at his best, above all psychologically," explained club president Massimo Moratti, according to ESPN.

"For us it's natural to look for a way to not be forced to sell him and he has the right to not accept our offer. If it stays like, the solution will be on the transfer market."

Sneijder began his career at Ajax, before moving to Real Madrid in 2007 and then Inter Milan two-years later.

A move to Manchester United would be hugely popular with the fans, and the attacking midfielder would join compatriots Robin Van Persie and Alex Buttner if he were to join last season’s Premier League runners-up.
