Sneijder, who last year won an historic domestic treble with the Italian giants, has attracted interest from a host of Europe's finest, including United, after helping to guide the Netherlands into a World Cup final for the first time since 1978.

"I am staying. I will play for Inter Milan next season," Sneijder said. "My heart is in Milan. With Inter, I won everything last season and there's a lot more to win, like the European Super Cup, Italian Super Cup and the World Club Cup, which are all great trophies."

Sneijder, who joined Inter from Real Madrid last summer, is under contract with the Nerazzurri until June 2013. Reports in Italy claim Sneijder could sign a two-year contract extension with the European champions after the World Cup.
