Inter: Sneijder Must Accept a Pay Cut or Be Sold

Inter Milan director Marco Branca has confirmed that misfit playmaker Wesley Sneijder “will not play until we have made the necessary modifications to his contract”, meaning he either takes a cut to his $7.8 million salary, or he will be sold in the January transfer window.

For several weeks now, the Dutchman has been saying he is getting back to full fitness, but Inter coach Andrea Stramaccioni continues to leave him out of the starting lineup.  

“Wes is part of our history and we care for him, but we are discussing a necessary contract modification with him,” Branca told Sky Sport Italia. “We will give him and his entourage the time to evaluate our proposal, so the decision not to use the player can be traced back to this wait for a more relaxed and clear situation. The club and Coach are in agreement that until the player is in a clear state of mind, he will not play.”

Meanwhile, Inter fell further down the Serie A table this weekend with a 1-0 loss at Parma. The result left the Milan club tied for third place on 28 points, four behind leader Juventus, which also lost on Sunday.
