Wesley Sneijder, Inter midfielder

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder could complete his shock move to Galatasaray as soon as this weekend according to Sky Sports.

Sneijder is desperate to leave Inter after being frozen out of the squad following a contract dispute in the summer and the Turkish club are the first to place a realistic bid.

Manchester United and Arsenal have both been heavily linked with a move for the Dutch playmaker who is still considered to be one of the best midfielders in world football.

Despite refusing to sign a new contract at Inter, Glatasaray are still having to cough up over £8million for the 28-year-old who will become the highest paid player in the Turkish league.

The players agent Soren Lerby has confirmed that the bid has been accepted and that contract talks are well and truly underway as the ball is now in Sneijder’s court with a decision expected to made as soon as this evening.

“The talks started yesterday and today a delegation from the club arrived to meet him,” Lerby said last night.

“Now the decision lies with him, anything is possible in football and Turkey is fast becoming a hot destination.

“If everything goes to plan the deal will go through. We will wake up tomorrow and everything will be more clear.”
