Rodney Sneijder has revealed he told his brother Wesley to move to either England or Spain in the summer transfer period, but he insisted on staying at Inter Milan.

Rodney is currently on loan at FC Utrecht from Ajax. The 20-year-old himself has said he would like to move to the Barclays Premier League or La Liga.

And the midfielder has now come out and insisted that he tried to convince Sneijder to move to another league, with the playmaker strongly connected to a deal with Manchester United over the summer.


"I do not like Serie A football. Every time I watch Inter play, I'm left thinking 'what the hell are they doing?' I prefer England or Spain,” he said.

"Of course I told Wesley my thoughts. Wesley is one of the few players at Inter who like to play good football.

"But he doesn't want to leave the club. There's not much more to say."

Sneijder was thought to be readying a £35 million move to United in the summer, but his high wage demands cooled interest from the club.

Sir Alex Ferguson has continually insisted that United were never interested in Sneijder, but the Holland international, and Inter Milan, have claimed that talks took place over a move.
