Inter outcast Wesley Sneijder has told Dutch media that “clearly it’s better for everyone if I leave in January.”

The midfielder has not played in months, as after recovering from injury he was dropped due to a contract dispute. The club wants him to lower his €6mper season wages.

“Clearly it’s better for everyone if I leave in January,” Sneijder was quoted as telling Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf.

“If that doesn’t happen, then I will stay. I have a contract until the end of June 2015 with Inter.”

Sneijder was also asked about his possible return to the Holland national side, perhaps with the captain’s armband.

“It would be a great honour to wear it again. I have always kept in contact with Louis Van Gaal over the last few months.
