Man United transfers: Sneijder won’t be forced to sign new deal – Inter chief
Man United transfers: Internazionale president Massimo Moratti insists Wesley Sneijder won't be forced to sign a new deal
Wesley Sneijder will not be forced to sign a new contact at Internazionale, according to the Serie A club’s president Massimo Moratti.
The San Siro outfit are reportedly unwilling to fork out £4.8m per year for the Netherlands international’s services, with his current deal set to expire in June 2015 and the club keen to reduce his wages.
The former Real Madrid midfielder is a long-term target of Manchester United, with the Red Devils coming close to signing the 28-year-old playmaker in the summer of 2011.
But Moratti insisted the relationship between the club and the player is still good despite ongoing reports of unrest.
“Our rapport is not frosty as far as I am concerned,” said Moratti.
“There isn’t a clear contrast in positions, as we are trying to find a solution that suits both parties.
“We do not want to force anything on anyone. It is a situation that will be broken down only by common sense.”
Sneijder has scored 25 goals in 114 appearances for Inter after joining the club in a €27m (£22m) deal in 2009.
