Manchester United transfer target Wesley Sneijder is unsure over his Inter Milan future after the Serie 'A' club banned him from first-team action, and Manchester City are now eying a move for the Dutchman.

Inter insist the Holland star will not play for the club until he agrees to take a significant pay cut. The Dutchman reportedly earns £200,000-a-week with the Italian side, but Inter want Sneijder to sign a new deal on reduced terms, and Manchester City are thought to be weighing up a £15m January bid to lure him to the Premier League, according to The Metro.

Manchester United, Schalke and Russia side Anzhi have all been linked with moves for the exiled playmaker as well, and the 28-year-old star admits he's not sure what the future holds.

When asked by fans about a possible January transfer, Sneijder said: "I am happy here, but I don't know what will happen."

The report claims Sneijder's comments could spark interest from Manchester City, as Roberto Mancini is thought to be a big fan of the Holland international.

City twice tried to buy Sneijder, and the report claims the Dutchman could be available for £15m, which may tempt another bid from City for the Inter Milan player.

Sneijder is reportedly furious at being told to take a pay cut, and the ultimatum could force him out of the club. The Dutchman played a key role as Inter Milan won the Champions League and Serie 'A' title under Jose Mourinho in 2010.

Manchester United missed out on Eden Hazard and Lucas Moura in the summer - but Ferguson did sign Shinji Kagawa from Borussia Dortmund. The Old Trafford club are thought to be long-term admirers of the former-Real Madrid midfielder.
