Wesley Sneijder conceded anything can happen in football as speculation over his future continues to simmer.
Manchester United have continually been linked with an approach for the Inter Milan schemer as they look for a long-term successor to Paul Scholes, with some reports in Sunday's press claiming a firm offer has been lodged.
Speaking in the aftermath of his side's 3-0 defeat to Manchester City at the inaugural Dublin Super Cup, the midfielder insisted he was happy in Italy but refused to rule out a move to the Premier League.
"What will happen? We'll see. There is always a chance that something will happen, but we will see," he said.
"I've played in many competitions. I started in Holland, then played in Spain and now the Italian league, and I'm still here.
"We will see what happens but I'm happy here."
Sneijder insists the persistent speculation over where his future lies is not something which overly concerns him given it is something he has grown accustomed to over the years.
"There is always speculation," he added. "I've said before, I've played for almost 10 years at the highest level and every year there is speculation.
"As you can see, I'm still here. I'm always happy. I'm a happy guy. I'm just happy to train every day with my colleagues and to train every day and to play my game for the fans."
Sneijder admits he was impressed by a Manchester City side who claimed an eye-catching victory courtesy of goals from Mario Balotelli, Edin Dzeko and Adam Johnson.
He said: "They are a great team, they have great individual players and even as a team they are very good. They play very compact very strong. They are quite a good team."
