Wesley Sneijder looks set to feature in the Premier League next season, with Man Utd likely to tie up a deal for the midfielder in the coming weeks.
The Dutch international is set to join the Premier League champions in a £35m deal, with Portuguese winger Nani heading to the San Siro as part of the agreement.
Signing Sneijder has been Sir Alex Ferguson's top priority all summer and an Old Trafford source told the Daily Mail, "Wesley is obviously a top player and we would love to sign him."
However, negotiations stalled over the weekend, with Sneijder's £250,000-a-week wage demands the stumbling block.
United are reluctant to pay the former Real Madrid player more than Wayne Rooney's £220,000-a-week.
The Old Trafford source told the Mail, "It will be a question of whether Wesley will accept a salary which puts him on the same level as Wayne."
Sneijder currently earns £170,000-a-week, but the Italian tax regime is more favourable to high earners than in the U.K. Any deal would have to exceed £220,000-a-week to match the player's current net earnings.
Nani interested in Serie A move
Reports in today's press suggest Inter Milan will "demand" Portugal winger Nani as part of any deal that takes Sneijder to Old Trafford.
According to Caughtoffside.com, the Serie A club are interested in bringing the midfielder to the San Siro after the player hinted at a move away from Old Trafford last month.
Nani is scheduled to hold talks about his Old Trafford future with Sir Alex Ferguson in the next few days, following the arrival of Ashley Young from Aston Villa.
AC Milan and Juventus are also interested in the winger, who scored nine goals in 33 league appearances last season.
Meanwhile, United are interested in signing Porto striker Falcao this summer, according to reports this morning.
With Dimitar Berbatov set to leave the club, Ferguson has identified the Colombian international as an ideal foil for Wayne Rooney and Javier Hernandez.
However, Chelsea are also interested in the forward and that fact, coupled with a buy-out clause of €45 million, makes any deal with Porto unlikely.
Finally, Sergio Aguero is not heading to Old Trafford, despite reports in yesterday's press.
The Los Angeles Times had speculated that the Argentina international was the subject of a £40m bid from United but the Manchester club in question was City, rather than United. Atletico Madrid are yet to receive an offer for the 23-year-old, reports this morning suggest.
