Sneijder’s January move confirmed by wife

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder seems certain to leave Italy in the January transfer window after his wife spoke about emigrating on the local press.

Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau is a popular personality on Italian television but she may have given too much away in her latest media appearance.

Dutch midfielder Sneijder has been in a contract dispute with Inter for months now and was dropped from the side because of it this season.

With the Dutchman refusing to take a pay cut and being told he can have Christmas off, it does appear that he has played his last game in the blue and black.

Manchester United and Sir Alex Ferguson have been long time admirers of the talented midfielder and are rumoured to have made contact over a January move.

European heavyweights PSG could all also be interested in Sneijder, who at 28 years old still has plenty to offer any club in the world.

The Dutchman’s wife let slip about her and her family emigrating and indicated she wanted to find a nice place (which could rule out Manchester United).

“We are about to emigrate,” Sneijder-Cabau told De Telegraaf as reported by Sky Sports.

“It should happen in early January and we are looking for a nice place for our family.”
