Wesley Sneijder has confirmed he would like to join Manchester United and suggested 'unofficial talks' have taken place.
Asked if he was keen on a move to Manchester United, Sneijder has now said: "Yes, but nobody has called officially. Maybe there have been unofficial talks.
'The situation is that I'm an Inter player and there is a big chance that I'll still be an Inter player at the 31st of August. There's also a chance that I leave.'
The interviewer asks: 'Does that have to do with you?'
Sneijder: 'No, not really. That's more because of the club. The club has been really clear: "If a good bid comes in, than we have to let him go."
'They don't want to loose me, but there is a chance that they'll let me go.'
Interviewer: 'Do you want to go?'
Sneijder: 'I don't know. That's why I say, I'm an Inter player and the there is a big chance that I'll still be at the 31st of August. And if something crosses my road, I have enough time to judge that and to take a decision about that.'
Interviewer: 'We're standing here now, but If Manchester calls and they want to have you, you would immediately say yes, won't you?'
Sneijder: 'Yeahh, but Manchester hasn't called officially.'
Interviewer: 'And unofficially?'
Sneijder: 'Nahh, unoficially maybe'
Interviewer: 'Have they also called you, I mean is there any contact? Of course there is contact..?'
Sneijder: 'There's always contact. I have contact with everybody, haha. You know that don't you?'
'No, but there's nothing going on right now, so.. I'm here now, and I'm going in now to the guys (Dutch national team) that I haven't seen for a while now and I'm going to concentrate on that right now. Besides that, I'm an Inter player and I'm with the Dutch team now.'
Interviewer: 'You're going to England together with the other players. Are you also coming back with the other players?'
Sneijder: 'Uhh, you mean back to Holland?'
Interviewer: 'Or is there any consultation planned in England?'
Sneijder: 'Uhhh, I don't know'
Interviewer: 'Oh, I hear it, yes, right?'
Sneijder: 'Uhh.. Well, I'm going away after the game. At least, if I get the permission of our (national) coach. I have to go back.'
