According to Corriere dello Sport in Italy, one of Sir Alex’s long-term targets Wesley Sneijder has given assurances that he will remain at Inter Milan for next season, playing down rumours of a summer move to Old Trafford.

The Holland international’s future in Milan has been the subject of speculation over the last couple of months, with numerous reports suggesting that a move to United would be on the cards for the 26 year old.

However, on Wednesday Sneijder’s agent Soren Lerby played down those rumours, explaining that his client – alike all top world-class players – is often linked with major European clubs. Sneijder himself has now given his take on the rumour and for the moment hinted that his future remains at Inter.

“Next season? I’ll be here,” the 26-year-old told the Corriere dello Sport.

Sneijder struggled with injuries this campaign as Inter lost their grasp on their titles that they won so emphatically last season. But the former Ajax and Real Madrid playmaker is keen to end the current season in style, when Leonardo’s side take on a tricky Palermo side in the Coppa Italia final on Sunday.

“I’ve been training with the squad without any problems,” he said. “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.”

Sneijder has had a successful time in Italy since leaving Madrid in the summer of 2009 and played a key part in Jose Mourinho’s treble-winning side last year as Inter swept aside everyone before them. Despite not doing as well this season, due to the coming and goings at the club, Sneijder’s form has still caught the eye of football fans across Europe.

In the eyes of many United fans, even without Paul Scholes future hanging in the air, there’s no doubt that Sneijder would be able to fit into our team and be the creative force that at times we are crying to have.

Then again with us only one game away from securing a historic league and European Cup double, our squad must be quite good already, so whose to say that Sneijder is the answer, so to speak.
