Inter playmaker Wesley Sneijder - who was recently linked with a move to Manchester United - has flattered the English side by describing the club as 'beautiful', but insists that he is happy where he is for the time being.
The Dutch international had been dubbed a potential long-term replacement for the aging Paul Scholes, and although he feels content in Milan for now, Sneijder's kind words would appear to have opened the door to a move to United in the future.
Speaking on Dutch regional television Studio Ajax, he said:"Do I want to go to United? It's a beautiful club. But I'm fine in Milan and not at the point to think about it."
Sneijder has been gained the attention of many potential suitors this season following a star showing last year, in which he helped inspire Inter to its first ever treble and also was the focal point of the Netherlands side which reached the World Cup final.
Nonetheless, Inter president Massimo Moratti has played down the chances of the Dutch international leaving San Siro.
Speaking about the speculation last month, the Italian confirmed United's interest, but played down talk of a transfer.
“The interest from Manchester United in Sneijder is real,” said Moratti. “But I didn’t look into it. My only interest is seeing Sneijder play here for many more years to come.”
Meanwhile, Tottenham forward Rafael van der Vaart was also a guest on the TV show and joked that players from Manchester were looking to move to London and suggested Sneijder would be wise to do the same.
He said: "All the players from Man United and [Manchester] City are coming to the city of London in their own time. I think that says enough about that city."
