Gasperini hints Inter to sell Man Utd target Sneijder

Inter Milan boss Gian Piero Gasperini has hinted they're ready to sell midfielder Wesley Sneijder.

The Sun says Manchester United boss Alex Ferguson is a firm admirer of Sneijder's talents and was linked with a £29million bid for the playmaker last year.

Gasperini has hinted he could be prepared to offload the 27-year-old in a bid to raise funds for new recruits.

And the Inter boss cited the example of Zlatan Ibrahimovic - who was sold to Barcelona for £39m in 2009 and included Samuel Eto'o as part of the deal - as an example of how they have improved after selling a big-name player.

Gasperini said: "There is every intention on the club's part to come out of the transfer window stronger - not less so.

"But two years ago, Ibrahimovic left and the team was reinforced.

"All the players I have know how to play in many different roles. Last year, Sneijder also played in different positions."
