Long term Manchester United target Wesley Sneijder is reportedly close to leaving Inter Milan after contract negotiations with the Italian club once again have broken down.
Sir Alex Ferguson has expressed an interest in the talented Dutch midfielder on more than one occasion in recent years and it seems he won’t have a better chance at snapping up his man than in January.
“Sneijder isn’t playing because the coach (Andrea Stramaccioni) doesn’t think he’s at his best, above all psychologically,” Inter president Massimo Moratti told the Daily Mail.
“For us it’s natural to look for a way to not be forced to sell him and he has the right to not accept our offer. If it stays like that, the solution will be on the transfer market.”
Inter also released a club statement: “We’ve been negotiating with him for a while and we need to modify his contract.
“We want to give him time to think about it and so we won’t be using him for the time being.”
