Man Utd Miss Out As Wesley Sneijder Signs New Five-Year Deal With Inter

Inter Milan have confirmed that Wesley Sneijder signed a new five-year contract with the club during a shareholder’s meeting last night. The Ballan d’Or nominated midfielder is now tied to the Nerazzurri up until 2015.

Sneijder flirted outrageously with Manchester United over the close season, but it seems that the Inter hierarchy have now pinned down the Dutch playmaker, with president Massimo Moratti telling the club’s official website:

“The fans will be happy above all else because we have today reached an agreement with Sneijder for a contract extension until 2015. Sneijder became a key player for Inter last season and will be this year, and for many years to come.

The negotiations started despite the fact he had a long time to go on his old deal (which expired in 2013) but with mutual satisfaction they were completed [on Friday] morning.”

With Sneijder firmly removed from the market, United manager Sir Alex Ferguson better cross his fingers that Bastian Schweinsteiger doesn’t suddenly become all ‘long-term contracty’ at Bayern Munich over the next few months.

    Apprently in football contracts were made to be broken so it’s not over yet.

    don’t know what or if he has a buy-out clause but if any manager is not the type to fork out for those it’s alex ferguson. but why now pigfarmer? he’s an acutely poorer version of sneijder. or the german version of fletcher. pick ur choice.

    wonder why sneijder extended though, with no challenges remaining at inter for him to go for besides the world club cup trophy. that’s if he gives a flying fuck about that b-prize.
