Inter Milan chief Ernesto Paolillo admits the Serie A giants would sell Wesley Sneijder if presented with an offer they could not refuse.English champions Manchester United have been linked to the playmaker throughout the transfer window with reports the San Siro outfit is holding out for an offer in the region of 40 million euros.
Paolillo said on Thursday the club had not received an offer from United, but admitted they would consider selling the Dutch international.
“I don’t think there’s anything that can’t be sold. It all depends on the price,” he told La Gazzetta dello Sport on Thursday.
“There are certain opportunities that you simply can’t turn down.”
“An offer from Manchester United for Sneijder? We haven’t heard or seen anything yet.”
Paolillo would not be drawn into whether they were interested in want-away Manchester City forward Carlos Tevez after Inter sporting director Marco Branca spoke to him on a beach in Sardinia recently.
“We can’t do anything about it when he comes to Milan or visits the same beaches as Branca. Nevertheless, we’re not going there looking for him,” he said
Staying in the Italian top flight, AC Milan chief executive Adriano Galliani believes Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas will remain with the Premier League side.
Galliani also denied speculation the Serie A champions were interested in signing Fabregas, who has been heavily linked to a move to Barcelona.

The AC Milan chief also ruled out a move for Bayern Munich midfielder Bastian Schweinsteiger.
