Sneijder signs new Inter Milan contract
Friday 29 October 2010
Internazionale's Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder has ended speculation about his future by putting pen to paper on a contract extension to keep him at the San Siro until the summer of 2015.
The 26-year-old enjoyed an astonishing first season with the Nerazzurri, helping Inter to a treble of Champions League, Serie A and Coppa Italia success, before playing a major role in the Netherlands' progress to the World Cup final.
However, the likes of Manchester United and Chelsea have been linked with moves to try and prise Sneijder away from Milan, which have now seemingly been dashed.
Inter president Massimo Moratti told the club's official website: "The fans will be happy above all else because we have reached an agreement with Wesley Sneijder for a contract extension until 2015.
"Sneijder became a key player for Inter last season and will be this year and for many years to come.
"The negotiations started despite the fact he had a long time to go on his old deal, but with mutual satisfaction they were completed this morning."
