Papers: Back in for Wes?

The Sun reports...

Wes red alert
Manchester United are on alert for Wesley Sneijder again after the midfielder’s contract bust-up at Inter Milan. Old Trafford manager Alex Ferguson was ready to pay £35million for the Dutch international last summer. Inter want Sneijder, 28, to take a pay cut but he is refusing to renegotiate a new deal. He rapped: “There is little reason for me to sign.”

In other transfer news, The Sun says United have been told to forget about signing Borussia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski in January. The Telegraph claims, however, that the Reds are prepared to wait until the end of the season before making a renewed bid for Lewandowski after the German champions placed a £24.3million valuation on the Poland international.

Meanwhile, the Telegraph reports David Silva will undergo intensive treatment on back and hamstring injuries in an attempt to get him fit for the Manchester derby on Sunday.

The Daily Mail says United, City and Chelsea will fight it out to have Jose Mourinho as their next manager.
