Inter President Massimo Moratti shot down reports of a swap between Wesley Sneijder and PSG star Javier Pastore. “We’ll keep Wesley, as he is the best out there.”
The rumours emerged after the Dutchman refused to sign a new contract that would lower his €6m per season wages.
In turn, Paris Saint-Germain could offload Pastore after Coach Carlo Ancelotti confirmed he was “disappointed” with the former Palermo player.
“An exchange between Pastore and Sneijder? No, we’ll keep Wesley, as he is the best out there,” Moratti told Sky Sport Italia.
“There has already been too much talk about Sneijder. The problem is in the media more than anything else and I have an excellent rapport with the lad.
“When he returns to the disposal of Andrea Stramaccioni, he will be an added bonus for the squad.”
Inter have made it clear Sneijder will not play again until he resolves the contract dispute.
