Real Madrid midfielder Wesley Sneijder will not be leaving the club this summer, according to the player's agent.
The Dutch international has made 51 league appearances - netting 11 times - since joining the Madridistas in 2007.
However, following the expensive acquisitions of Kaka and Cristiano Ronaldo from AC Milan and Manchester United respectively, reports have suggested that Real are open to offers for Dutch quintet Sneijder, Rafael van der Vaart, Arjen Robben, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Ruud van Nistelrooy in order to help balance the books. Sneijder himself - who has been capped 52 times by his country - has been linked with moves to Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham Hotspur and Inter Milan, with the latter believed to have agreed a deal with Real to take him to the San Siro.
But the player's representitive, Soren Lerby, has now insisted that he will be going nowhere for the time being.
"We have an understanding with Real Madrid that Wesley can't leave the club. And nothing has changed there," he told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
