Inter Milan star Sneijder denies pricing himself out of Man Utd move

Inter Milan ace Wesley Sneijder denies pricing himself out of a move to Manchester United.

Sneijder claims he came close to joining United and that the transfer didn't happen because he wanted to stay at the San Siro.

"For me, it was not so much a financial issue," said the Holland midfielder.

"My feeling was that I was simply feeling very good at Inter. I love the club, but also the Italian culture and the people. It fits with me.

"I just felt that it was close, yes. We had several talks. The situation was such that Inter had to sell a player, either Samuel Eto'o or me, and indeed there was interest."
