Inter have released a statement insisting “in no way did we discuss Wesley Sneijder in today’s meeting with Manchester City.”
It is well known that technical director Marco Branca was in London today and spoke with City chief Brian Marwood.
“In no way, and entirely down to our own wishes, did we discuss Sneijder in today’s meeting in London with Manchester City directors,” Branca wrote on the official club website.
Certain Italian and English newspapers had suggested Sneijder was part of the negotiations when Inter enquired after Carlos Tevez.
The Nerazzurri were reportedly given short shrift when it came to Tevez, as rivals Milan are at a considerably more advanced stage in talks.
Today Sneijder also stated he was "90 per cent" sure of staying with Inter.
