Premier League clubs suffer blow in Sneijder pursuit

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder is on the verge of joining Turkish giants Galatasaray in a €10m deal, according to reports from Sky Sports.

The Dutchman has been linked with Premier League clubs such as Liverpool, Manchester United and Manchester City recently as a result of a contract dispute with his current employers.

Galatasaray have stepped in to take advantage of this, tabling an offer which is has been accepted by the San Siro outfit, according to president Massimo Moratti:

“Galatasaray’s offer satisfies us. Now it depends on the player.”

As well as agreeing a fee, the Istanbul based side are also willing to match Sneijder’s wage demands, which could see him put pen to paper.

Payment is the issue surrounding the 28-year-old’s stay in Italy, with Inter keen to reduce his basic salary.

Sneijder has rejected their demands, which has seen him axed from first-team duty.

Although they have accepted the bid for his services, Moratti has refused to close the door on him staying at the club, but has remained strong on the wage issues:

“We would be happy if he decided to stay on our terms. I haven’t spoken to him, but if he did decide to stay on our terms he would be a great help.”
