Inter have made it clear that they want Manchester United target Wesley Sneijder to remain at San Siro.
The Dutchman’s future is in some serous doubt as he continues to be linked with the Old Trafford outfit.
“Is he leaving? Yes, for training…” smiled Inter director Ernesto Paolillo. “Joking aside, Sneijder is an integral part of our squad.
“A lot of what you read in the newspapers about this situation doesn’t correspond with reality,” the official added.
“When it comes to Sneijder, it is our full intention that he stay here with us.”
United are apparently ready to offer around £30m for the former Real Madrid man who arrived at Inter in 2009.
Sneijder has been tested in a central midfield role by new Inter boss Gian Piero Gasperini in his 3-4-3 system.
