Inter midfielder Wesley Sneijder has held the door open for a possible move to Manchester United this summer, declaring that there is always a possibility that he could leave the Nerazzurri.

Sneijder has been a target of United boss Sir Alex Ferguson since the start of the summer, but Inter have been unwilling to play ball. This though changed when the Italian giants snapped up Ricardo Alvarez from Velez Sarsfield – Alvarez is seen as Sneijder’s successor.

Nevertheless, Inter are in no rush to sell the former Real Madrid man and only a very substantial bid from United will force them to reconsider.



Questioned on his future after Inter’s 3-0 friendly defeat to Manchester City, Sneijder replied: "Could I leave? There is always a possibility."

The Dutchman though did stress he is happy at Inter.

"We’ll see what happens. I have been a professional for ten years and I’ve realised there is always speculation.

"Yet, as you can see, I’m still here. I am still a happy man.

"I am happy to train every day with my team-mates and play for the fans.

"I’ve played in so many championships, the Netherlands, Spain and Serie A.

"Let’s see what happens, but I’m happy here."
