Inter declared that Sneijder would not play again until he agreed to sign a new contract cutting his €6m per season wages, but after FIFPro accused them of “blackmailing” the player, they made it clear this was “a technical decision” based on his state of mind.
“Wes trained well like all the others and he is available like all the others,” said Stramaccioni.
“I am aware that from the outside this can all seem more complicated than it really is. I have an excellent rapport with Sneijder and he has sat at my table every day, except for when he was in Los Angeles. Everything is clear between us.
“I do have a few doubts on my line-up, because some of the players are not in perfect condition. My concentration will be on those who will start, as I have to decide after the last training session.”
