Sneijder admits he is 'for sale'


Soccer: Wesley Sneijder has broken his silence on the speculation on his future and admitted he is "for sale if the right offer comes in" as Inter Milan "need money".

Sneijder has been strongly linked with Manchester United all summer, while Gazzetta dello Sportreported on Saturday that City had struck a €36 million deal for the the Dutch midfielder.

Speaking after the Community Shield, City boss Roberto Mancini dismissed the claim and insisted he has not been in contact with his former club, while Inter's current coach said Sneijder's future would be discussed next week.

The former Ajax and Real Madrid midfielder, who scored in the opening goal in Inter's 2-1 Super Cup defeat to Milan on Saturday, will travel to the UK for Holland's friendly at Wembley in midweek.

He told Voetbal International: "All I know is that Inter need money and that I'm for sale if the right offer comes in. I have five days off after the international friendly against England on Wednesday. I expect clarity on my future by then.

"I can be very brief about the interest from Manchester United and City: I haven't spoken with either of those two clubs, so I can't really say much about my future at the moment."

Speaking after his side's 3-2 defeat by United at Wembley, Mancini had said of City's reported interest: "It is not true. He is an Inter Milan player. We never spoke about him."
