Inter sporting director Marco Branca to travel to England to open talks with Manchester United about Wesley Sneijder - report

The Nerazzurri are reportedly ready to cash in on the Netherlands international and are willing to open negotiations with the English giants in the winter trade period
Inter appear to be ready to sell star player Wesley Sneijder in the January transfer window if a big money offer comes along.

La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that sporting director Marco Branca is set to travel to England in the upcoming days in order to open talks with Manchester United about a potential transfer.

The Netherlands midfielder appeared to be close to joining the Europa League hopefuls in the summer transfer window, but the deal eventually fell through due to unknown reasons.

United, however, are still keen on Sneijder as manager Sir Alex Ferguson is looking to add more creativity to his midfield, and Inter are ready to open talks with the Premier League champions.

However, it is questionable whether a deal can be done this winter as United seem reluctant to spend big at the midway stage of the season, and Sneijder will not be available on the cheap.

Additionally, the former Ajax and Real Madrid star's wage demands could prove to be a problem for the Old Trafford side.

Sneijder has a contract with Inter until the summer of 2015.
