Yolanthe Sneijder-Cabau, who is an actress, was speaking about rumours that she had been cut from an impending Mark Wahlberg film called ‘Pain and Gain’.

She said: “We are about to emigrate anyway, and that could happen in early January. We are looking for a nice place to start a family as I’m currently not that busy work-wise.”

Netherlands international Sneijder, 28, has been dropped by Inter after refusing to take a huge pay cut as they seek to reduce costs.

He had been linked with Manchester United for several transfer windows but insisted he would stay in Milan.

However, the latest impasse with Inter – which has been brought about by the club’s board as opposed to coaching staff – is the last straw and the former Real Madrid and Ajax playmaker is expected to leave in the January window.
