The wife of Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has clarified suggestions she and her husband will "emigrate" in January, stressing that they are "not leaving" the Italian city.

Sneijder, 28, faces an uncertain future at Inter after reportedly rejecting a request to take a pay cut.

Nerazzurri head coach Andrea Stramaccioni has said the Dutchman's three-month absence from his team is a tactical decision, but that has not stopped speculation suggesting he is set to leave the club.

Actress and television personality Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau was quoted in De Telegraaf on Friday evening as saying: "We are about to emigrate. It should happen in early January and we are looking for a nice place for our family."

However, Sneijder-Cabau later backtracked on her comments, writing on her official account: "So many questions about our situation.

"Sweet people, as far as I know we are not leaving Milano! Some 'media' will always make up stories.''

Sneijder, who won the treble with Inter under Jose Mourinho in 2010, has reportedly attracted the interest of Paris St Germain and both Manchester City and Manchester United.
