Inter boss Andrea Stramaccioni has opened the door for Wesley Sneijder's return, claiming that 'the shirt is ready'.
The Dutch midfielder has been entrenched in a bitter contract dispute with the Nerazzurri after failing to accept their offer of a wage-cut.
The 28-year-old has since been left out of the squad by his Coach, but Stramaccioni has today confirmed that his instrumental playmaker could make a comeback.
“Sneijder? I'm sure I will change my mind,” he told Sportmediaset. “The shirt is ready for him.”
He also commented on the past 12 months for him personally and for the club.
“2012 has changed my life,” he said. “It was a great year. For 2013 I want to [President Massimo] Moratti a gift.
“I think the year's been a seven [out of 10]. We've done well overall, and have shown that as well as challenging for trophies, we can give birth to a major project.”
