£25m Liverpool target could spark United Sneijder swoop

Manchester United's pursuit of Wesley Sneijder could be renewed if Inter Milan decide to sign Lucas from Sao Paulo, according to Metro.

The Dutch playmaker was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford following the retirement of Paul Scholes at the end of the season.

A deal looked dead in the water after the closing of the summer transfer window, but injury to the 27-year-old and a lack of form in a struggling Inter side could lead to his departure.

As a replacement, Inter have lined up a move for United and Liverpool target Lucas, who, reports suggest is valued at £25 million.

With Darren Fletcher, Tom Cleverley, Anderson and Darron Gibson all out injured, Sir Alex Ferguson could be tempted to add to his United squad ahead of a New Year push at the title.

Despite only trailing Manchester City by two points, United have lacked their customary flair in attack, and in Sneijder would find the ideal assistant to the likes of Wayne Rooney and Nani.
