Wesley Sneijder himself has given the biggest indication that a deal taking him to Manchester United could happen very soon after admitting talks have begun.

Speaking in a video interview on Dutch website, the Inter Milan midfielder said he would like to join the Old Trafford outfit:

Yes, but Manchester United have not made an official approach yet. There have been unofficial talks, there have been contacts, but I have contacts with everybody.

In July, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson denied any approach for Sneijder saying: "I have not been involved in this situation. There is no real interest for a lot of reasons. There is nothing I can tell you about it."

However in the recent interview, Sneijder said:

The situation is that I am now an Inter player and chances are that I will still be that come 31 August. There is also a chance I could leave. 

That isn't really down to me but the club. I think Inter have been very clear: If a good offer comes in, they have to let me go. They don't want to lose me but there is a chance they will let me go. If something crosses my path, I have enough time to make my decision.

Inter Milan chief executive has suggested that the club could sell Sneijder:

Is Wesley definitely not for sale? I don't think there's anything that can't be sold, it all depends on the price. You never say no if a big opportunity comes your way, but it does have to be a real opportunity.
