Inter Milan play maker Wesley Sneijder has admitted that this could be his last season with the Italian giants. Sneidjer has been with the Nerrazzuri since 2009 and despite signing a 5 year contract extension last summer tying him to the club until 2015, the Dutch star has lately looked very unsettled with the team.
Latest reports link Sneijder with a move to Premier League side Manchester United and when questioned about his future, the 27 year old maintained that there was a 10% chance he could leave Inter.
Speaking to Voetbal International, Sneijder was quoted as saying that though he was comfortable at Inter at the moment, he was not 100% certain of staying as anything can happen.
“If I must give a percentage for it, I think I am 90 per cent certain I will stay [until at least the summer],” Sneijder said.
“I enjoy myself here at the moment and at this point I don’t have anything to choose from.
“I don’t say that I am 100% certain because something unexpected can always happen.”
Injury lay offs have seen Sneijder fail to replicate the form the he exhibited for his first club Ajax. Ironically, it was this same factor that saw him leave Spanish giants Real Madrid.
According to Inter Milan, the club is set to open up talks in the next few days as their sporting director Marco Branca is expected in England soon. Ferguson has been a long time admirer of Sneijder and was so close to signing him last summer before the deal fell through for very unclear reasons.
That said, United fans seem to have welcomed the move. Many claim that the midfield lacks creativity and the signing of Sneijder could help the club rediscover their wining mentality.
The only major hinderance to the deal could be Sneijder’s price tag. With United not keen on spending big now and Inter not willing to let their star player go cheaply, this could be one of those deals that end up materialising on the last day of the transfer window.
Until then all United fans can do is keep their fingers crossed and hope that these were not just empty rumours.
