Wesley Sneijder has once again reiterated his desire to stay with Galatasaray, despite rumours of a move to Manchester United.
The Dutch playmaker has been consistently linked with a move away from Turkey since making his 2013 transfer to the club from Inter Milan, with the Red Devils a side said to have been interested.
Speculation of a switch to Old Trafford has only intensified over the course of the past few months, with Louis van Gaal known to be an admirer of the experienced pass-master after working with him in the Holland international set-up.
The 30-year-old has been involved in pay disputes with Gala, but recent reports have suggested that he is happy in Istanbul.
And the player himself has backed up these claims by insisting that he does not want to join any other club, United included, in January:
“There is no reason to worry. If I had problems with the club, I would discuss it internally, not through the media.” He is quoted by the Daily Star.
“I have already said that I am happy here and I do not want to go, despite what the media say.”
Sneijder has played for Ajax, Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Gala during a glittering career.
