Inter Milan chief executive Ernesto Paolillo has admitted that Wesley Sneijder would be sold by the club for the right price, as Manchester United continue to chase the star.

Paolillo said that while no formal bid has been made for the playmaker, valued by the Daily Mirror at £35 million, should the right price be offered for Sneijder, the Italian giants will consider selling up.

"Are Manchester United still after Sneijder? We haven't seen or heard from anyone; that's a story I've heard from you," he said.


"Is Wesley definitely not for sale? I don't think there's anything that can't be sold, it all depends on the price.

"You never say no if a big opportunity comes your way, but it does have to be a real opportunity."

Manchester United are on the lookout for a playmaker to replace the retired Paul Scholes, and have continually been linked to the possible purchase of Sneijder.

There have been numerous problems with a proposed move though, with Sneijder’s weekly wage of £250,000 a week said to be an issue with United, along with his TV presenter wife’s desire to stay in Italy.

But United continue to be connected with Sneijder, and after David Gill said yesterday that United would be making one more signing in the transfer period, the Dutchman's move to Old Trafford seems to be a rumour that won’t die, despite continual denials from Sir Alex Ferguson over a deal.
