Sneijder’s agent plays down Tottenham link

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder’s agent has rubbished speculation of a January move to Tottenham.

The Dutch international has been linked with a move to the Premier League in recent months, with Spurs becoming the latest club to be rumoured as his destination.

Due to a contract dispute, the 28-year-old has not played for the San Siro side since September and appears highly likely to move on sooner rather than later.

Despite rumours of an imminent switch to White Hart Lane, his representatives have played down the speculation:

“There is nothing, absolutely nothing true about that.” He is quoted by Sky Sports via Algemeen Dagblad.

Manchester United were linked with the playmaker over the summer, but a move failed to materialise.

Big-spending French club Paris Saint-Germain are thought to be interested, although a move to the Parc de Princes may not appeal to Sneijder, who would be battling with many talented players to break into the first-team.

The Holland international began his professional career with Ajax, after graduating from the Amsterdam club’s legendary youth set-up.

After five years, Real Madrid swooped to take the midfielder to Spain in a £20m deal.

He struggled to command a regular starting berth at the Bernabeu before moving to Inter in 2009.
