United set for disappointment as Lerby confirms Sneijder stay

It appears Manchester United’s hopes of signing midfielder Wesley Sneijder have taken another hit as the Dutchman looks to be staying at Inter Milan, reports the Mirror.

Wesley Sneijder has long been on the radar of Alex Ferguson, who is looking to add quality of the Dutchman’s ilk into an often toothless Man United midfield.

However, much like the outcome of the protracted transfer saga of this past summer, Sneijder looks to be staying put.

Sneijder’s representative Soren Lerby told La Gazzetta dello Sport: “I really think Wesley will stay at Inter. A few weeks ago he said he was 90 per cent sure he would stay.”

Lerby also brought up the fact that there are problems between Sneijder and Inter officials, something United will surely continue to monitor.

The Dutch international has been troubled by injury this season, resulting in only eight league appearances and the single goal.

United’s great rivals Manchester City also appear keen on landing the creative midfielder, with a swap deal involving Carlos Tevez suggested.
