Man City take Sneijder for €36m!

The Gazzetta dello Sport is adamant Inter have already sold Wesley Sneijder to Manchester City for €36m, so today's Super Cup is his last appearance.

Up until now the Dutchman had been heavily linked with a bid from Manchester United, but sources in Italy suggest their rivals over at Eastlands have swooped instead.

The front page of today's Gazzetta declares Sneijder has already agreed a transfer to Roberto Mancini's squad for €36m – over €20m more than Inter originally paid for the midfielder.

He is set to sign a contract worth €6m per season with the Premier League outfit.

Inter director Ernesto Paolillo did hint that something could happen this week when he said, “Sneijder is not for sale unless we receive an offer we can't refuse.”

This could well include an option to take Carlos Tevez on loan with an option to buy at the end of the season.

His final appearance in an Inter jersey could well be today's Italian Super Cup against Milan in Beijing, kick-off at 13.00 UK time.
