Sneijder absent due to contract issue

Inter Milan technical director Marco Branca has revealed that Wesley Sneijder has recently been absent from the first team due to an issue with his contract and he will not play again for the club until it has been resolved.

• Blog: Sneijder at crossroads

Sneijder, 28, has played just five times for Inter this this season having struggled with injury.

In recent weeks the Netherlands international has insisted he is fit enough to return to action, but has been omitted from the squad by manager Andrea Stramaccioni. Like many Nerazzurri players, he has been prevented from using social media to discuss club matters.

Reports on the peninsula have been wildly contradictory, with some claiming he was set to join former team-mate Samuel Eto'o at Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala, while others believed him to be faking injury.

Now, however, Branca has revealed the real reason behind the player's absence, adding that the move to omit him had the full backing of all concerned.

"He is part of our history and we care for him but we are discussing a necessary contract modification with him," Branca told Sky 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."

There was an almost immediate response from Sneijder's camp, with his father saying they were happy to finally have clarification on the matter.

"We are glad Inter finally made the situation public, we are not forcing the situation forward," he told Voetbal International. "These negotiations have been going on for weeks.

"Now we know what Inter's real position is we can find a solution. Wesley still has two years left on his contract and we hope to resolve everything as soon as possible."
