Friday 06 January 2012
Inter Milan have confirmed they have held talks with Manchester City but not regarding the possible sale of Wesley Sneijder.
The Italian giants have reportedly joined the race to acquire City striker Carlos Tevez, who is a target of AC Milan.
Reports in England claimed Sneijder could be included as part of the deal to bring Tevez to Inter in the winter transfer window.
A statement from Inter read: "Regarding reports from the British media, Inter Milan technical director Marco Branca wishes to underline and clarify the situation immediately that there were no discussions whatsoever regarding Wesley Sneijder during our meeting in London with representatives of Manchester City."
Sneijder, who was a reported target of Manchester United in the summer, is under contract with Inter until June 2015 and recently claimed he was "90% certain" he would stay with the Nerazzurri this season.
