Sneijder must take wage cut to join Liverpool
The Dutch international has been unsettled at the San Siro after disagreements over a suggested annual pay cut of £1.6million, and is now on the verge of leaving Italy with Liverpool among a host of clubs believed to be interested.
The midfielder is currently earning £200,000 a week with the Italian club, figures which Liverpool would struggle to match. They are only interested in a deal if the player takes a wage cut, however he has denied that money is an issue.
“It’s not a question of money. I have time and won’t be rushed,” The Sun quoted Sneijder as saying.
“My doubts have nothing to do with the offers.
“I don’t want to feel forced into a life decision in a short space of time.”
Turkish giants Galatasaray have had a £6.3million bid accepted for the 28-year-old, however he has been reluctant to commit to the move and is believed to favour coming to the Premier League.
Galatasaray president Unal Aysal is adament that he wants a quick decision from Sneijder otherwise they will revert their attention to other targets, saying: “We’ll wait another three of four days.”
The saga looks set to rumble on and while Sneijder looks certain to leave Inter, his destination remains unknown.
