Coutinho wants duo to stay

Philippe Coutinho has urged Inter to keep both Wesley Sneijder and Samuel Eto'o at the club this summer.

Sneijder is of interest to Manchester United, while Russian side Anzhi have made an offer of around €40m for the Cameroon striker.

"I would be sad to see Wesley leave," the Brazilian youngster told La Gazzetta dello Sport on Friday.

"I'm not interested if I'd get more playing time if Sneijder left the club. I'll find some space in the team.

"If it was up to me, then I'd want both players to stay because they are champions. I hope to see them again when I return to Appiano Gentile."

The attacking midfielder is currently in Colombia taking part in the Under-20 World Cup.
