Manchester United are considering a part-exchange deal to sign Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan, according to Portuguese publication A Bola.

The 28-year-old Dutch international is a long-term target for the Premier League giants, and could finally make his switch to England when the transfer window reopens in January.

Red Devils boss Sir Alex Ferguson is a huge admirer of Sneijder, having tried to bring him to Old Trafford on numerous occasions in the past. He had been linked with a transfer as recently as the summer, before United confirmed the acquisition of highly rated Japanese star Shinji Kagawa.

The 23-year-old former Borussia Dortmund playmaker has impressed significantly in the handful of appearances he has made for Manchester United in 2012/13, leading many to question where Sneijder would actually fit into the current line-up.

However, according to reports, one player making way is Portuguese winger Luis Nani. Talks over a new deal have reached an impasse, and after he was recently involved in a training ground bust-up with a United team-mate, his future appears increasingly uncertain.

Nani played and scored in the weekend defeat against Tottenham - the first time Spurs have won at Old Trafford since 1989 - with Andre Villas-Boas' side prevailing 3-2. His inclusion suggests that the fall-out may have been exaggerated, but failure to sign a new contract before the summer will almost certainly prompt an exit.

Meanwhile, Sneijder picked up a muscle injury in the recent Serie A clash against Chievo, and has been ruled out of action until November.
