Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has been given the all-clear to bid for Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder. The People says United's American owners have given Ferguson the go-ahead to launch a shock raid for Inter Milan's £20million playmaker Sneijder.
The 26-year-old Dutchman - who scored and starred in Holland's defeat of Japan yesterday - is one of Ferguson's main summer targets as he tries to beef up a midfield that needs more creativity and drive for next season.
Ferguson has long admired Sneijder but he faces a big battle to land the Dutch star.
It will take some serious sweet-talking from United to tempt Inter into parting with their star midfielder.
