Wesley Sneijder hints at joining Man Utd as club prepare £35million bid

With Manchester United reportedly lining up a £35million bid, Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has admitted that he cannot guarantee he will still be at the San Siro next season

The 27-year-old last week told reporters in Italy that he was "very happy" at Inter, adding that he didn't see why he should leave the club.

But with reports that the Premier League champions are preparing a £35m bid for the Netherlands international, Sneijder has again given comments suggesting that he is open to a move.

"I love Inter with all my heart," he was quoted by Tuttomercatoweb as saying. "But God will decide where my future will be. Only he knows it.

"I want to thank the fans as they have always been great with me, and I want to assure them that if I stay at Inter then I will do everything to win more."

The People on Sunday reported that United are lining up the new bid amid growing speculation that the Red Devils are on the brink of a fresh take­over attempt from Qatar.

Sneijder, who has also been linked with a move to Chelsea, could reportedly be part of a £125m spending spree at Old Trafford as speculation builds that Qatar Holdings, the business arm of the country’s ruling royal family, are behind United's summer spending spree.

Qatar Holdings, a division of the Qatar Investment Authority, had a £1.5billion offer to buy the club turned down last year.

But it has been claimed that the Qataris may have funded a loan ­repayment by the American-based Glazer family late last year to the tune of £250m.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is currently on holiday in the south of France, but is close to completing deals for Aston Villa winger Ashley Young and Blackburn defender Phil Jones worth a combined £40m.

Ferguson is also looking to sign Udinese winger Alexis Sanchez (see below) and Atletico Madrid goalkeeper David de Gea, while Arsenal winger Samir Nasri is also on the Scot's shopping list.
