The Nerazzurri are preparing to make a bid for the Madrid star, but they won't use their star full-back as bait.
Following the acquisitions of Genoa’s Thiago Motta and Diego Milito, the Nerazzurri have now lifted their interest in Real Madrid’s Wesley Sneijder, according to the latest reports.
SkySports24 has claimed that the champions of Italy are preparing a cash payment for the Dutchman, but this will not be made public until their presidential election has taken place.
Madrid’s president-elect, Florentino Perez, has declared his desire to sign Inter’s Maicon in the past, leading to rumours of a potential swap deal involving the Brazilian right-back and the Oranje midfielder.
However, it seems increasingly unlikely that Inter coach Jose Mourinho and president Massimo Moratti will consider offloading one of the strongest defenders in the squad.
