Wesley Sneijder has finally put a complete end to speculation surrounding his immediate future at Inter Milan.
The Dutch international playmaker has been heavily linked with a move away from the San Siro, with a move to Old Trafford mooted throughout the summer and again this month.
Sneijder had intimated earlier in the month that he was expecting to stay in Italy for the remainder of the season, and he's now convinced that this remains the case as the Serie 'A' giants make their charge up the league table.
"I am in good shape and I feel well. The future? I stay at Inter, I feel good here," SkySports quote Sneijder as saying after the 2-1 win over Lazio on Sunday.
"How much is left until the end of this transfer window? A week, no? I'm staying here."
The Nerazzurri made a dreadful start to the current campaign, and their poor form led to Claudio Ranieri taking over from Gian Piero Gasperini.
'The Tinkerman' has led an improbable resurgence, and with Sneijder recently returning from injury for Inter, they now sit just six points off the top of the table in fourth place.
As for Manchester United, they've been linked with a number of players in the attacking midfield position this month. Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted he's happy with his current squad though, and with Sneijder not available, a move from the Red Devils now appears unlikely.
