Sneijder not expecting January move

MAn United need to buy SneijderWesley Sneijder has admitted that he is ‘90% certain’ that he will not leave Inter Milan for Manchester United during the January transfer window.

The Netherlands international was linked with a move to Old Trafford during the summer, but in the end the Serie A side kept hold of their star playmaker.

Sir Alex Ferguson has not replaced Paul Scholes, who retired in the summer, and is thought to covet a new attacking midfielder to give the side a creative boost.

Despite reports in the press that United have made another bid for the 27-year-old, Sneijder is not expecting to leave Claudio Ranieri’s men in the next month.

“If I must give a percentage for it, I think I am 90 per cent certain I will stay,” he told Voetbal International.

“I enjoy myself here at the moment and at this point I don’t have anything to choose from.

“I don’t say that I am 100% certain, because something unexpected can always happen,” he concluded.
