Sneijder claims he came close to joining United and that the transfer didnâ€™t happen because he wanted to stay at the San Siro.
â€śFor me, it was not so much a financial issue,â€ť said the Holland midfielder.
â€śMy 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.
â€śI just felt that it was close, yes. We had several talks. The situation was such that Inter had to sell a player, either Samuel Etoâ€™o or me, and indeed there was interest."
