Liverpool target ‘reignites’ £30m United playmaker chase – report

Wesley Sneijder could be set for a move to Manchester United after all, according to the Daily Mail, with Inter Milan planning a move for Liverpool target Eden Hazard.

Hazard has long been a target for Liverpool, with Arsenal also showing interest in the Lille star, but Inter are now said to be preparing a bid that will include a big pay packet and bonuses that English football can’t offer the 20-year-old.

United were strongly connected to Sneijder over the last summer transfer window, but a move never eventuated, with the Dutchman’s wage said to be a big stumbling block at £250,000 a week.

But now that Inter are trying to get the money together to pay for Hazard, who will no doubt be the subject of a bidding war come January, the club are reportedly willing to offload Sneijder to United for a cut-price figure, with Sir Alex Ferguson holding the power in the deal.

Sneijder is said to be worth around £30 million, but with Inter unable to afford his wages with Hazard coming into the Serie A side, United will be able to negotiate a more realistic wage deal.

Manchester City and Chelsea are both also said to be interested in Sneijder, but United are far more keen to get hold of the 27-year-old, particularly after their 6-1 thrashing at the hands of City last weekend.
