Sneijder: I’m staying with Inter


Netherlands star Wesley Sneijder has pledged his future to Internazionale following interest from Manchester United.

Inter president Massimo Moratti revealed earlier in the week that the Old Trafford club had made an approach to sign the midfield playmaker.

Sneijder has been in stunning World Cup form for the Dutch in South Africa after scoring five goals during their march to Sunday's final.

However, the 26-year-old former Ajax and Real Madrid midfielder claims he is happy at Inter and not looking to leave Serie A.

Sneijder arrived in Milan last summer and helped his new club to a treble of domestic league and cup and Champions League crown last season.

"It is correct that Manchester United have approached Inter about my availability but I don't have the intention to leave Inter any time soon," he said.

"My heart is with Inter. I've won almost everything with Inter that we could win last year and I'm looking forward to winning even more titles here.

"I have set my sights on the Italian Super Cup, the European Super Cup and the Club World Cup.

"There are so many more titles to be won with my current club. Therefore, I will stay at Inter."
