Sneijder willing to DEMAND Inter sell him to Man Utd

Wesley Sneijder has decided he wants to leave Inter Milan for Manchester United. The Telegraph says Sneijder's enthusiasm to engineer a move to Old Trafford has made the 27-year-old Inter Milan playmaker United's most viable option to strengthen midfield.

Sneijder will this week meet Massimo Moratti, the Inter owner, at the Italian side's pre-season retreat at Pinzolo to discuss his future.

The former Real Madrid and Ajax player is expected to tell the oil magnate that he would consider leaving Italy but only for a club of equal stature on the global stage.

That would appear to rule out Malaga, the Arab-owned Spanish side, who are thus far the only team to have made a firm offer for his services after informing Inter they would pay their £32million asking price. Conversely, Sneijder is prepared to agitate for a move to Old Trafford.

Moratti is also expected to convene a meeting of Inter's board - suggestions in Milan indicate that may be as soon as Tuesday - to discuss the possibility of allowing a player in the prime of his career to leave San Siro.
