Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has refused to rule out a move to Manchester United but is likely to have to lower his wage demands to seal a move to Old Trafford.

“There is always a chance something will happen but we will see,” he said.

The 27-year-old Dutchman is valued at around £35m but has a reported weekly wage of £250,000.

Inter Boss Gian Piero Gasperini has told United they must speak with his club, and not the player, if they want to conclude a deal.

“I appreciate there’s been an offer, but it’s with Inter the negotiations should take place,” said Gasperini.

“I’m not necessarily worried, it’s normal in this time to have this type of situation. The market is open to 31 August, and it will continue to happen until then.

“It’s not just Inter, it’s the same with other big clubs who have players that are object of desire for big clubs.”

Both Wesley Sneijder and Inter Milan boss Gian Piero Gasperini have very much opened the door to complete this long term saga as Man United appear to be close to completing a deal to bring the Dutch international to Old Trafford.

Some sources believe that advanced talks are very much in full swing between Man United and the San Siro star’s representatives as Serie A giants Inter Milan seem willing to sell the former Real Madrid and Ajax star this summer.

Having brought in Ricardo Alvarez, Luc Castaignos and Jonathan is appears that the Nerazzurri are very much planning for the future and there is growing speculation that Samuel Eto’o may also be sacrificed as Inter Milan re-shape their squad.

Sir Alex Ferguson is clearly not a man to rest on his laurels and having spent around £50m to bring David de Gea, Phil Jones and Ashley Young to Old Trafford the Scot is still looking for another ‘marquee’ signing to further their hopes of not only maintaining their stranglehold on their Premier League crown but also looking to improve their chances of Champions League glory.

Man United are clearly going through their own freshening up process and having lost a number of mainstays in recent months Ferguson is looking to build a new generation of talent to help build for the future. Edwin van der Sar, Gary Neville and Paul Scholes all retired, Owen Hargreaves was not offered a new contract and Wes Brown and John O’Shea were sold to Sunderland.
