After being linked with town rivals Manchester United over the past two summers, it appears now that Inter Milan and Dutch star midfielder Wesley Sneijder could indeed finally be making a move to Manchester after all.  

Current reigning Barclay's Premier League champions, Manchester City, have been linked with the Dutch midfielder.  Just days after Eden Hazard made his decision to leave Lille for London side Chelsea, Manchester City apparently are setting their sites elsewhere. has reported that Sneijder is set to move, with Chelsea and Man City being his two targets.  The 27-year-old Dutchman will be seeking wages will over £200,000 a week.  

Sneijder would add another element to a very defensive Manchester City midfield and would certainly strengthen their aspirations for success in Europe.  

Despite a rocky 2011/12 season, Sneijder is still a world-class midfielder.  A great Euro Cup this summer could dramatically raise his stock this transfer window. 

I, for one, would love to see Wesley Sneijder wearing sky blue at the Etihad next season.
