Inter Milan manager Claudio Ranieri has reiterated his desire to retain the services of Wesley Sneijder, amid reported interest from Manchester United.

Sneijder has scored once in nine appearances for Inter this season, but continues to feature heavily in Ranieri's plans at the San Siro.

The 27-year-old has, however, consistently been linked with a move to Old Trafford, and speculation has mounted further following a midfield injury crisis at United.

Sir Alex Ferguson is without Darren Fletcher for a significant period of time, while Anderson and Tom Cleverley also remain in the treatment room.

It is expected, then, that the United boss will dip into the transfer market come January, and Sneijder has been touted as a potential target.

Ranieri, though, wants to keep hold of his Dutch playmaker, and will not entertain any offers.

"I don't want to think of a team without Sneijder because he is the feather in our cap," the Italian said at a press conference.

"I am used to talking between four walls and if I have something to say about transfers, I say it to [Inter president Massimo] Moratti."
