Inter Milan chief Marco Branca admits they won't play Wesley Sneijder until he accepts a pay-cut - or is SOLD. Branca has come clean over the real reason behind his absence.

"We is part of our history and we care for him, but we are discussing a necessary contract modification with him," Branca told Sky Sport Italia.

"We will give him and his entourage the time to evaluate our proposal, so the decision not to use the player can be traced back to this wait for a more relaxed and clear situation.

"The club and Coach are in agreement that until the player is in a clear state of mind, he will not play."
