Sneijder digs in his heels over Real Madrid exit

Netherlands midfielder Wesley Sneijder is resisting pressure from Real Madrid to accept a move away from the club, the player said on Saturday.

Real are trying to trim their squad after a €250m spending spree on a number of top players including Cristiano Ronaldo, Kaka and Xabi Alonso.

They have a dearth of midfielders and, according to media reports in Spain and Italy, have been negotiating a deal to sell Sneijder to Inter Milan.

"I want to play at Real Madrid. I don't want to leave because I know I am capable of being an important part of this team," Sneijder was quoted as saying in sports daily Marca.

"I will fight until the very last moment to stay here. I will continue to train hard like a good professional so they see I am keen to continue here."
