Nigel De Jong has recently stated his desire to stay at Manchester City regardless of signing a contract extension. Via Goal.com.
The Netherlands international's current deal runs out next summer and the club has yet to agree an extension with the midfielder.
"My contract runs for another year, so I'm in a pretty good position," De Jong told Dutch magazine NUsport. "I want to stay [at Manchester City]. I've been at the club for three years and I’m feeling really well. I have won the FA Cup and the league title, which are the biggest trophies in England."
That would definitely put a damper on Inter Milan's reported interest in the player. De Jong's statement shows he would prefer the possibility of playing in the Champions League as well, something Inter cannot offer.
Inter certainly has the money to sign the player but from an ambition standpoint it is unlikely he will leave.
