Inter to hold talks with Man Utd over Wesley Sneijder deal this week - report

Inter Milan are reportedly set to open talks with Manchester United over the sale of playmaker Wesley Sneijder.

Sneijder has been linked with a move to Old Trafford on a number of occasions over the past twelve months and a £35million move to Manchester last summer was only believed to have fallen through because of his £200,000-a-week personal demands.

Despite Inter coach Claudio Ranieri last week insisting Sneijder is his "prize jewel," reports at the weekend claimed the Italian giants could be ready to cash in during this month's transfer window, with president Massimo Moratti said to have met with agent Soren Lerby to let him know that he will be sold if his asking price is met.

And according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Inter sporting director Marco Branca is set to travel to England later this week to open talks with the reigning Premier League champions about a potential transfer.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson recently insisted he has enough strength in his squad without having to buy this month, but he stated last week that he could bring in a new player should one of his long-term targets became available, which it was thought was a signal that the door could still be open for Sneijder to join the club.

However with United out of the Champions League, it remains possible that a deal may not happen until the summer.

As previously reported, Moratti is considering launching a bid for Sao Paulo's teenage midfielder Lucas, who has been linked with the likes of Chelsea, Liverpool and Real Madrid in recent weeks, as a replacement for the Netherlands international.

Chelsea and Man City have also shown interest in Sneijder.
