Inter ace Sneijder: I wanted Man Utd move - I was so close!

Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder admits he would have loved to have signed for Manchester United.

Sneijder confessed he wanted a move to Old Trafford in the summer.

"United? I would have liked to [join them]. It would be crazy to suggest otherwise," Sneijder told the Corriere dello Sport.

"There was a moment when I was close to United, but in the end nothing happened.

"However, I am happy in Milan as the president [Massimo Moratti] did not want to sell me.

"Inter gave me a chance when the door was closed. I feel at home here and I never wanted to go.

"I don't know why my move to Manchester United never materialised, maybe they never really wanted me."
