The Italian sport website have reported that after constant speculation, the Premier League champions came forward with a bid of €39Million today but are not the only ones interested in the Dutch playmaker.
Recent reports in England have suggested that both Premier League rivals, Chelsea and Manchester City are in the running for the midfielder but according to gazzetta.it, it is the ‘Manchester City of Spain’ – Malaga CF who are set to lodge a big of €35Million.
The Spanish club were taking over by a Qatari consortium last season and like the Manchester City owners, they are now starting to flaunt their cash in the transfer market and are determined to make their interest in Sneijder formal. After already acquiring big name signings in Jeremy Toulalan and Ruud Van Nistelrooy this summer, this would really show they mean business.
Wesley Sneijder is much more likely to prefer the option of Manchester United in terms of football but the sweet scent of money may turn his head towards Spanish shores.
With the prospect of a Samir Nasri switch becoming ever problematic, due to the reluctance of Arsene Wenger to sell to his old foe, it seems as though Manchester United are taking the initiative with a bid for Wesley Sneijder.
If the bid has been placed today then there will no doubt be a response, not only from mega-rich Malaga, but also from Manchester City and Chelsea, who will have to decide whether to make their interest a reality.
