Wesley Sneijder

Where will the Dutchman end up this season?

United’s move for Internationale’s Wesley Sneijder appears to be stalling which has paved the way for Manchester City to swoop in according to reports.

The Manchester Evening News notes:

” City are poised for a sensational swoop on United’s top transfer target Wesley Sneijder.

“MEN Sport understands that Inter Milan are to propose a swap deal for want-away Blues star Carlos Tevez.

“And Sir Alex Ferguson last night distanced himself from a move for the Dutchman, saying ‘Forget it’, when asked about Sneijder on United’s tour of the USA.

“He added: “We are looking at some things but I am not so sure Sneijder will be easy to get.

“I could pick three or four players to come in but they wouldn’t be good enough for us so there is no point.”

“With City also closing in on a £38m deal for Sergio Aguero, the Blues are set to blow the lid off the European transfer market.

“City are losing patience with Arsenal over the proposed £20m purchase of Samir Nasri – also on Fergie’s wanted list – and Inter are keen to land Tevez, with Italian sources claiming they will sacrifice Sneijder in order to get him.

“The Inter move comes hot on the heels of City calling Corinthians’ bluff over their £39.4million bid for Tevez”

In all honesty this move doesn’t come as a surprise as with United seemingly unwilling to match Sneijder’s wage demands and City having no such qualms it could turn out there’s another dramatic twist in a transfer saga that’s already getting tedious.

    Fuck Man u! If Man city can afford to purchase Sneidjer and also convince Tevez to stay or land Segio then the sky will no longer be the limit for city next season.
    Mancini well done!

  7. Ricky says:

    Its just rumours, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Sneijder is a Man City player by the start of next season. Its a shame that we couldn’t get him, but maybe we need to put our faith in Cleverley and Anderson.
