After bursting onto the scene with Ajax and an underwhelming spell at Real Madrid Wesley Sneijder settled in Inter Milan and made the place his own, and since joining the Italian giants in 2009 the Dutch magician has become the world class forward that many expected him to become after joining Madrid.
He was instrumental during Inter's treble winning 2009/10 season but ever since the departure of Jose Mourinho question marks have been raised every summer about his future at the club.
Sir Alex Ferguson has made no attempts to dampen speculation and has often voiced his admiration for the 27-year-old with a move to Old Trafford reportably close to happening last summer until Manchester United baulked at the asking price of €35 million.
That price tag still remains but after losing out on the title to bitter rivals Manchester City Sir Alex is keen to add one if not more world class players to his squad in order to ensure that City don't become England's dominant force.
Rumors of a controversial move to rivals AC Milan has also been talked about over the past few days, but it is thought that Inter president Massimo Morrati would refuse to sanction such a move.
