Sneijder desperate to quit Inter - but wages too rich for Man Utd, Man City

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder is being touted around the Premier League, it has been revealed.

The Independent says Manchester United will not be pursuing a deal for the Dutchman.

Though the club do not publicly discuss their transfer business, they are willing to let it be known that chief executive David Gill's position on the issue - disclosed most recently on pre-season tour of the United States - has not changed. United's stance on the non-existence of a deal is an emphatic one.

A highly placed source at a Premier League club - not Manchester United - has told The Independent that Sneijder is desperate to leave Internazionale as he feels there's little chance of future success.

But wages matter more to the player than ambition: his basic weekly wage demands of at least £200,000 have been off the scale, for both United and Manchester City.
