Inter will consider Sneijder sale, says Paolillo

Inter chief Ernesto Paolillo says a big bid for Wesley Sneijder will be considered, as speculation over the midfielder’s future rumbles on.Netherlands international Sneijder, 27, is still believed to be keen on joining the English Premier League champions, but it seems his wage demands have been a major stumbling block.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson tried to cool talk of their interest in the player after saying he knew nothing of negotiations between the clubs, while Inter manager Gian Piero Gasperini has intimated the Serie A outfit still relies on him

But Inter chief executive officer Paolillo has said a top offer from England will be evaluated and did not close the door on Sneijder leaving if United submit a suitable bid.

“If an offer we cannot refuse arrives, whether for Sneijder or other players, then we will start to think about a replacement,” Paolillo told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Sneijder is a reference point for our club, but then football always evolves and anything can happen.”

“But there are no talks, and so we are not thinking of changing.”

Sneijder is likely to play for Inter in Saturday’s Supercoppa Italiana clash against city rivals AC Milan in Beijing.
