Default Sneijder believes he is for sale

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder believes he is for sale
BBC, 8 August 2011 08:59 UK

Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder has been quoted as saying that Inter Milan would sell him for "the right amount".

The 27-year-old has been linked with a move to Manchester clubs United and City, although both have denied having made an approach for the player.

"All I know is that Inter need money and apparently I'm for sale for the right amount," he told Voetbal International magazine.

"I've not spoken with City or United so I cannot say anything about my future."

  • Born in Utrecht in June 1984
  • Won respected Johan Cruyff Award (best young player in the Netherlands) with Ajax in 2004
  • Known for being comfortable passing the ball with both feet
  • Mixed time with Real Madrid, who he joined in 2007 for 27m Euros
  • Man of the match for his national team in six out of eleven games at Euro 2008 and the 2010 World Cup
  • Scored as Inter knocked Barcelona out on the way to winning the 2010 Champions League
He added: "Next week I play with the Oranje [Dutch national side] against England and then I have five days off. I hope that then everything will be cleared up."

Italian newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport reported on Friday that City had signed the midfielder.

City boss Roberto Mancini dismissed the reports following his side's 3-2 defeat to United in the Community Shield on Sunday.

"No," he said. "It is not true. He is an Inter Milan player. We never spoke about him."

However, the former Inter manager did state that he was looking to add to his personnel before the close of the summer transfer window.

"We need to complete our squad," said the Italian.

"We have another 23 days until the end of the market in order to achieve the target we had at the start of pre-season."

In July, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson said his club had "no real interest" in signing Dutchman Sneijder.

His comments followed reports that claimed a deal of around 35m had been agreed between United and Inter, with Sneijder accepting terms on a 190,000-a-week contract.

Sneijder scored from a free-kick at the weekend in his side's 2-1 defeat by city rivals AC Milan in the Italian Super Cup.
