Inter Milan midfielder Dejan Stankovic is confident Wesley Sneijder will stay at the club and not join Manchester United.
Sneijder continues to be linked with a move to United, despite claims from United boss Sir Alex Ferguson last week that he was not that interested in the Dutchman.
It is believed United have lined up Sneijder as the ideal replacement for the retired Paul Scholes.
However, Stankovic is so sure Sneijder will remain at the San Siro he claims he will bet 'a pizza and a beer' that he will go nowhere.
"I bet a pizza and a beer that Wes doesn't go away," Stankovic told Sky Italia.
"In a couple of days you'll see that Wes will take the microphone and say that he will remain with us at 100 per cent".
Stankovic also praised new team-mate Ricky Alvarez following his arrival from Velez Sarsfield.
"I honestly didn't know him, but in these early days the boy has shown so much of him.
"He has talent and I am convinced that he will give a big hand in this season."
