United to miss out on Sneijder

Wesley Sneijder's immediate future appears to be in Italy, despite continued speculation over a move to Manchester United.

The Dutch international playmaker was heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford in the summer, and has once again been placed on Sir Alex Ferguson's radar in the British press this month despite claims from the Scot that he's happy with his squad.

Sneijder himself tried to play down the reports by saying he was 90% sure of a stay at the San Siro, and now agent Soren Lerby has added further weight to suggestions he'll be sticking in Serie 'A'.

"I really think that Wesley will remain at Inter, because a few weeks ago he said he was 90 per cent sure that he would stay," Lerby told

"Why didn't he say 100 per cent? He wasn't trying to hide any problems he has with the club or the coach, or any offers from other clubs. He left a small percentage, because in football anything can happen.

"For that same season, I would answer in the same way when asked about his future."

Sneijder has only just returned from injury for Inter after two-and-a-half months out of action with a muscle-strain in his right leg. The midfielder came off the bench in Sunday's 1-0 derby win over AC Milan.

Diego Milito pounced on a mistake from Ignazio Abate, and fired the only goal of the game past Christian Abbiati to move within six points of league leaders Juventus after a horror start to the campaign.
