Internazionale midfielder Wesley Sneijder seems to like giving mixed signals. Being one of the most touted players in this summer's transfer market, the Dutchman has hinted at a possible move away from the Italian side having given the idea, just days back, that he was happy at Milan and would continue with Inter next season.

On Friday, Sneijder had quashed rumors linking him to England and a possible move to any of Chelsea and the two Manchester clubs believed to have a firm interest in him.

He had told Corriere dello Sport, There is a family atmosphere at Inter and there are all the ingredients to aim high. Milan is marvelous, 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.

Now, however, in a report in Gazzetta dello Sport, Sneijder is quoted hinting at a possible move away, indicating that his future is far from confirmed.

He said: The Inter fans have always treated me very well. They were wonderful and I want to simply thank them. Only God will decide where my future lies. I can be certain of one thing: if I remain at Inter, then I will give my all to win everything again.

When you have had the greatest and most surprising year of your life [winning a treble in 2009-10], it's only natural that the next will be less rewarding. Not everything can be perfect. I had fun in my second year with Inter and was satisfied, even if we didn't win everything. At least this way we still have a few more objectives to reach. I love Inter with all my heart.

Where he will end up is anyone's guess, but Premier league champions Manchester United and their rivals, Chelsea and Manchester City, are some of the favorites to land him.
