Inter will not sell Sneijder to city rivals AC Milan - report

Inter reportedly have no intention of allowing playmaker Wesley Sneijder to join AC Milan.

It was reported on Thursday that the Netherlands international, who has struggled for form and fitness this season, was eyeing up a move to the Nerazzurri's city rivals only for the player to subsequently claim that the rumours were "without foundation".

According to Corriere dello Sport, even if the Dutchman is keen on joining the Rossoneri, Inter president Massimo Moratti would never allow Sneijder to swap Appiano Gentile for Milanello.

The paper claims that the Nerazzurri supremo is desperate to avoid the mistakes which were made with Andrea Pirlo and Clarence Seedorf, both of whom flourished after leaving Inter for Milan.

Corriere dello Sport also stated that there is no substance to speculation that Inter would consider exchanging Sneijder with Rossoneri forward Alexandre Pato.

Sneijder, who joined the Giuseppe Meazza outfit from Real Madrid in 2009, played a key role in the club's treble-winning campaign the following year but was last summer heavily linked with a move to Manchester United.
