Inter Milan ace Wesley Sneijder still has hopes to making a move to Manchester United in January. The Sunday Mirror says United pulled out of a deal for the Dutch international midfielder over person demands.

The Premier League champions had agreed a £30million fee with Inter Milan, only for Sneijder to up the ante by ­asking United to lay on a ­private jet and buy his house in Italy. That prompted United boss Sir Alex Ferguson to call time on his summer-long chase for the 27-year-old.

But Sneijder has told people close to him that a move to Old Trafford could be resurrected in January.

A source said: "Wesley wanted to go to United and was in negotiations until quite late. They couldn't agree terms but he is still saying he will end up at United."
