The Dtuch star was close to a move to Old Trafford, but the deal was scuppered by the high wage demands as well as transfer fees involved to bring Sneijder to Manchester United.
However, with their 6-1 loss to Manchester City highlighting the need for an experienced playmaker to dictate the rhythms of the Red Devil's attacking play, Sir Alex Ferguson could be tempted to turn his attentions back to the midfield maestro.
In addition, the Serie A giants are looking to cash in on Sneijder to pay for a summer swoop for Lille's Eden Hazard, who has also attracted the attention of Arsenal and several top clubs.
According to reports in the Daily Mail, the Red Devils are not the only suitors for the star though, with both Manchester City and Chelsea ready and willing to stump up the player's £250,000-a-week wage demands in order to deny United.
Inter are well aware of the interest surrounding the Champions League winner, and could well start a bidding war in order to extract the maximum transfer fee that the trio of Premier League sides could come to offer in order to land Sneijder.
