The wife of Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has backtracked after a Dutch newspaper reported she had said 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.
