Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti has hinted they're prepared to hand Wesley Sneijder a free transfer in January. Moratti admits they don't want a war with the Sneijder camp, which is sure to alert the likes of Manchester United, PSG and Manchester City to his services.
The Nerazzurri have made it abundantly clear they do not intend to keep paying the Dutchman's 6m per season wages.
The club announced Sneijder would not play until he had agreed to an extension that would reduce his pay, but the player seems to have no intention of signing.
"Our rapport is not frosty as far as I am concerned," assured Moratti.
"There isn't a clear contrast in positions, as we are trying to find a solution that suits both parties.
"We do not want to force anything on anyone. It is a situation that will be broken down only by common sense."
