Could this be his ccelebration in the red of Man Utd?

Manchester United have had a bid for Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder according to the latest reports. The Dutchman has been linked with a move to Old Trafford all summer long. 

The latest reports from Mirror Football notes:

“Wesley Sneijder WILL become a Manchester United player this week… if he accepts a restructured pay-deal to move to the Premier League.

The Dutch midfielder’s club, Inter Milan, have paved the way for a £30million-plus transfer by accepting, in principle, a formal offer United made at the weekend.

They are ready to grant Sneijder permission to speak to officials from Old Trafford, and the Mirror understands those talks will take place later this week.

The only stumbling block to what would surely be world football’s deal of the summer is the player’s wage demands, given the tax-favourable status he enjoys while playing in Italy.”

If these reports are to be believed then a transfer to Manchester United isn’t too far off. Wesley Sneijder has however travelled to Beijing for the Italian Super Cup match against local rivals AC Milan on Saturday 6th August.
