Ferguson waits for Man Utd green light to make opening £25M Sneijder offer

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is ready to deliver an opening round offer for Inter Milan's unsettled playmaker Wesley Sneijder. The Daily Mail says Ferguson has set his sights on Sneijder as his principal summer target and is prepared to meet a £25million asking price to prise him away from the San Siro.

Recruiting a midfielder with drive and energy is Ferguson's priority, and the feedback on Sneijder's likely availability has encouraged the Old Trafford boss to seek clearance to proceed with a bid.

An offer will be lodged with Inter, and their president Massimo Moratti is willing to sanction the Holland World Cup midfielder's departure, despite him signing a long-term deal this season.

Sneijder, who spent two seasons at Real Madrid before joining Inter in summer 2009, is ready for a fresh start and evidently relishes the challenge of replacing Paul Scholes as United's new midfield general.
