Midfielder Wesley Sneijder reveals that he was denied the opportunity to move to Manchester United while at Inter Milan.

Midfielder Wesley Sneijder has revealed that his former club Inter Milan denied him the opportunity to speak to Manchester United about a potential move.

Sneijder has been frequently linked with a move to Old Trafford in the past two years but no move ever materialised, and the Dutch international has revealed that it was purely the club's decision.

Sneijder told Fanatik: "Manchester United had offered €20m (£17m) for me and the club rejected it.

"I wanted to go to United but Inter didn't let me."

The 28-year-old has since moved to Turkish club Galatasaray
