Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder wants a move to Manchester United. The People says sources close to him say the midfielder with an explosive shot is now ready for a fresh challenge - with Old Trafford his No.1 destination.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini is also keen on the Dutchman - and the billionaires at Eastlands will not be scared off by the price.

Inter are said to want £35m for the star - even though they only paid Real £16m for his services two years ago.

Sneijder is reportedly on an annual salary of £10m and would want a five-year contract - a huge £85m investment that would test the commitment of United owners, the Glazer family.

Sneijder has the pedigree United want, but the outlay is massive - and that may leave the field clear for City.
