Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder 'about to emigrate'
Netherlands international will leave Italy in January according to his wife
Friday 21 December 2012
The wife of Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has told a Dutch newspaper that her husband will leave the San Siro in January.
The Holland international faces an uncertain future at Inter after rejecting a request to take a significant pay cut, with Nerazzurri head coach Andrea Stramaccioni insisting the 28-year-old's three-month absence from his team is solely a tactical decision.
But Sneijder was dismissed from training for Christmas early this week despite Inter having two more games to play before the winter break.
Actress and television personality Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau told De Telegraaf today: "We are about to emigrate.
"It should happen in early January and we are looking for a nice place for our family."
Sneijder, who won the treble with Inter under Jose Mourinho in 2010, has reportedly attracted the interest of ambitious French side Paris St Germain and both Manchester City and Manchester United.
