Inter Milan have insisted that Manchester United have not made contact with them over Wesley Sneijder, but admitted that every player has his price.
The Dutchman has constantly being linked with the Old Trafford club despite Sir Alex Ferguson saying firstly he would not move for Sneijder, and then that any replacement for Paul Scholes would come from within his own squad.
But the speculation was rekindled this week as United chief executive David Gill revealed that club did want another player.
Also strongly linked with Roma's Mirko Vucinic in recent days, Sneijder remains the man catching the headlines when it comes to United.
Speaking to Sky Sport Italia following the announcement of the Serie A fixtures for next season, Inter chief executive Ernesto Paolillo was quizzed about Sneijder's situation.
"Are Manchester United still after Sneijder? We haven't seen or heard from anyone; that's a story I've heard from you," he said.
"Is Wesley definitely not for sale? I don't think there's anything that can't be sold, it all depends on the price.
"You never say no if a big opportunity comes your way, but it does have to be a real opportunity."
He was also asked about Carlos Tevez, after their sporting director Marco Branca was pictured shaking hands with the Argentine.
"We can't stop him from coming to Milan or going to the same beaches as Branca, but we're not going there looking for him," he insisted.
