San Siro still awaiting bid from Old Trafford.
Inter Milan technical director Marco Branca has confirmed the Italian giants have not received a bid from Manchester United for midfielder Wesley Sneijder.
The Red Devils have been linked with a £35million move for the 27-year-old following the retirement of Paul Scholes in May.
United have also been keepeing tabs on Arsenal’s Samir Nasri and Tottenham’s Luka Modric but it seems the Dutch international is their preferred choice.
Sneijder, who is also on the radar of big-spending Spanish side Malaga, has stated several times this summer that he wants to remain in Milan.
But Inter say they have not received any concrete bid for the playmaker who is under contract until June 2015.
“No, there has not been an official offer and there has never been the intention to listen to them,” Branca told the club’s website.
“Hence, the player is getting on with his work and so are we. There are no updates.
“It’s not surprising that Sneijder is a player that is liked by many teams, including the strongest in the world like our team is.
“He is not for sale.”
Branca also denied reports in the Italian press that a meeting was scheduled this week between Sneijder’s agent and Inter.
“No, there are no meetings planned,” he said. “We don’t sell by force.”
