2011-08-06 12:06

Cape Town - Manchester City have reportedly pipped arch-rivals Manchester United to the signature of Inter Milan’s star midfielder Wesley Sneijder.

The Gazzetta dello Sport in Italy reports that Inter have sold Wesley Sneijder to Manchester City for €36m, with the Dutchman’s last appearance for the Italian giants set to be in Super Cup on Saturday.

Sneijder, who had been heavily linked to Old Trafford throughout the off season will reportedly sign a contract worth €6 million per season.

Manchester United and Manchester City clash in the traditional season-opener, the Community Shield, at Wembley on Sunday.

    its a bit worrisome to see Liverpool let in 15 goals in five friendlies........need a bit of tightening up in the back or they can fight for relegation ...

    This is apparently a rumour!!! This is just some Community Shield jibber to stir the pot!! Ohhh...just btw...barca lost to Man Utd about a week ago...and although City will be tough as hell...they don't have the mentality YET...Glory glory to Man Utd!!! We will once more be dominant...Liverpool and Arsenal looks like the "pie in the face" teams of 2011/2012

    Think Man City should recruit champions its worthless if you buy over priced players from clubs that has no prior experience of winning. I think sneijder will bring some positives to the team other that that a over priced team with no BMT.
