Manchester City midfielder Nigel de Jong has waded into the Wesley Sneijder transfer tussle this summer.

The Dutch international has urged his compatriot to choose City over arch-rivals Manchester United as reports continue to suggest the Inter Milan playmaker's future lays away from Serie 'A'.

Reports in the Daily Star claim De Jong has been in contact with his former Ajax academy teammate via phone, following up conversations whilst on international duty about life in Manchester.

Whilst the player's £200,000-a-week wage demands are thought to be a major stumbling block for United, it's claimed that City would be willing to meet the figure to secure the playmaker's signature.


Elsewhere, the race for Alexis Sanchez shows no sign of stopping, with Udinese owner Gianpaolo Pozzo confirming that the Citizens are still in the driving seat to land the player.

“If he was to leave, I would say that City have the highest probability of success.”

However, reports in the same paper claim the Eastlands outfit will not be held to ransom as the Zebrete demand £44 million for the player's services.
