Inter boss Gian Piero Gasperini plans to pick Wesley Sneijder against Milan in the Italian Super Cup on Saturday.
The Dutchman's future has been subject of increased speculation this summer, with Manchester United reportedly negotiating a big-money move.
Sneijder has been coy in relation to any such transfer, but Gasperini believes he is in the right frame of mind to feature in Italy's competitive curtain raiser, which will be held in Beijing.
"There is no Sneijder problem," he told the media in China. "He's playing for us, training with us and he'll play on Saturday."
Meanwhile, with the competition being staged in the Beijing National Stadium for the second time in three years, Gasperini has no problem with the location of the match.
"This game is an advert for Italian football and also for football in China," he said.
"Football is played in rain or shine, with humidity, in hot or cold weather.
"That's precisely why we came here early so that we can get used to the heat and humidity here. And in any case it will be the same for both teams."
