Internazionale midfielder Wesley Sneijder has been a huge target across Europe, with clubs of the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea touted to be a likely destination for the Dutchman.

A significant addition to any squad without doubt, Sneijder played a crucial role in Internazionale's quadruple win in 2010 and was a finalist with Holland in the World Cup in the same year. After Inter's 2010-11 season failed to match the heights of the previous year, rumours mills have been awash with several top clubs being linked to the Dutchman.

Sneijder however, has quashed the rumours, saying he likes life in Milan and suggested that he wants to continue playing for Internazionale.

There is a family atmosphere at Inter and there are all the ingredients to aim high, he told Corriere dello Sport. Milan is marvellous, picturesque and full of elegance. I love it. At the moment I am very happy here and I don't see why I should leave.

His seeming lack of interest in a move, along with a staggering wage demand could make it difficult for clubs to secure his services.
