Manchester United and Manchester City have been put on alert after Wesley Sneijder revealed he will not sign new terms at Inter Milan.

The Dutch international has been linked with a switch to Old Trafford in the past, but the latest twist in his contract saga has now reportedly sparked the interest of Citizens manager Roberto Mancini.

Sneijder’s representatives held talks with Inter officials in Milan on Monday but there were differing responses to the outcome of the discussion; Nerazzuri president Massimo Moratti claimed they were constructive, while Sneijder’s response was frank.

“At this moment I'm not playing, I have no intention of signing Inter's contract,” he is quoted as saying in a report.

United manager Sir Alex Ferguson has been criticised for a lack of creativity in the centre of his midfield at Old Trafford and there being no sign of a viable long-term replacement for 38-year-old Paul Scholes.

Meanwhile, Mancini has one of the leading playmakers in the Premier League with David Silva, but inconsistent form and tiredness have made the Spaniard’s contribution lessen so far this season.

Sneijder is currently not being picked by Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni, with the club stating he must take a cut in his wages due to the financial concerns currently occupying the Serie A side.
