‘Next Season? I’ll Be Here’ – Man Utd Jilted As Wesley Sneijder Commits To Inter Milan

On the very day that, according to the Guardian at least, the Manchester United board will take a relaxed attitude to Sir Alex going out and snagging a couple of ‘bank-breaking, world-class targets’ this summer comes the news that Wesley Sneijder – a man who was thought to be at the very top of Fergie’s wishlist – will sadly not be one of them.

When asked by Corriere dello Sport where his immediate future lies, Sneijder replied earnestly: “Next season? I’ll be here (at Inter).”

After missing several weeks with an ankle injury, the Dutch playmaker is set to return to the Inter fold this in good time to face Palermo in the final of the Coppa Italia this weekend – a prospect he is relishing:

“I’ve been training with the squad without any problems. I’ll certainly be there against Palermo, I want to play and win the Coppa Italia so that we can end the season in a good manner.”

Well then, that should put those pesky rumours to bed for a while – though, with the way these things tend to work, you can probably now look forward to an entire summer of daily ‘Luka Modric set to join United’ waffle as a result.

    @Your Not A Sex God

    you probably should have named yourself “You’re Not A Sex God”

    Sure, he says he’s staying, but if his club says he’s leaving, then he’s leaving. The club has the final word, period. Think of Beckham’s move to Madrid. Beckham didn’t want to leave, but the club said he was being sold and that was it. Its happened loads of times to many great players.

    If the De Gea thing becomes official for the supposed 17-20M, that means Sir Alex has a good 30M to cast out for the big catch (given the rumored 50M transfer kiddie the Glazers are allowing). 30M is a proper price for Sneijder, and if Inter see it the same way, he may just be wearing a red shirt next season.

    I’m really looking forward to the transfer market this summer. It seems many clubs are looking to shake things up, and for once its not Real Madrid.

    @Sex God

    -you probably should not have named yourself “Sex God”

    @ The Yank

    -you probably should have said transfer “kitty”

    and just so we can continue the grammar nazi trend, I’ll end with: I is real happy, our y’all happy two?
