Old Trafford target going nowhere this month.
Dutch maestro Welsey Sneijder has reaffirmed that he will not be leaving Inter Milan this month.
The Oranje midfielder has long been linked with a move to England, with both Manchester United and Manchester City keeping close tabs on his situation.
But the Inter star has again stressed that he has no intention of leaving the San Siro
“I am in good shape and I feel well. The future? I stay at Inter, I feel good here,” he stressed after Inter’s 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.”

So that should at least put this long running transfer saga to bed for this month at least. Sir Alex Ferguson has been linked with a move for the 27 year old Dutch international for the best part of a year but now that the Inter Milan man has committed to his San Siro side until at least the summer will the Old Trafford boss look elsewhere for reinforcements or stick with what he has available to him in his current Man United squad?
With Darren Fletcher out for the rest of the season, Tom Cleverley also sidelined and Anderson feeling his way back to full fitness, Ferguson opted to persuade Paul Scholes to come out of retirement, such was the level of need to beef up his midfield options.
Perhaps the veteran’s return buys Man United time but it also gives the impression that Ferguson knows that he is stretched in the central midfield area but is seemingly unwilling to spend big money to resolve the situation.
Sneijder had been strongly linked with an Inter Milan exit after the Serie A giants started the season so poorly but newly installed boss Claudio Ranieri has turned the ship around and got the most out of his squad and has seen the Nerazzurri move back into a title chasing position in fourth spot, some six points behind unbeaten leaders Juventus.
