Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder has priced himself out of a move to Manchester United - and to the Premier League.

The Daily Mail says United have dropped their plans to sign the Dutchman due to his contract demands.

United's decision to back off explains the fact that Sneijder's representatives have this week been hawking him around United's Barclays Premier League rivals Chelsea and Manchester City. Neither club have an expressed an interest, with City sources describing the overall cost of the deal as 'mind blowing'.

With Sneijder desperate to leave Inter, it now seems very possible that the World Cup finalist will find himself stuck at the San Siro when the transfer window closes at the end of the month.
