Was to be expected £8million bid for Wesley Sneijder made Livepool, Dutchman does not transfer to Galatasaray.
Dutch international Wesley Sneijder is expected to reject a move to Galatasaray, with a transfer to the Premier League a more attractive option for the playmaker.
The Turkish giants had a reported €10million (£8.2million) bid accepted by Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti last week but Sneijder did not agree to a move over the weekend despite Galatasaray director Bulent Tulun requesting a prompt response from the player.
According to a Turkish newspaper Sneijder can expect to earn €6million per year plus bonuses in Istanbul.
Moratti has urged Sneijder to make a decision by the end of the day.
“It would be professional if he would make his decision by the end of the day,” he told Gazzetta dello Sport today.
The Inter playmaker has told his agent his preference remains a move to England following spells in the Netherlands, Spain and Italy. Sneijder is willing to wait for the right move with over two weeks before the transfer window closes.
Reports in the Dutch press claimed Liverpool had made an £8million bid but this has been denied by the Merseyside club.
Wesley Sneijder has reportedly attracted the interest of Arsenal, Manchester United, Manchester City, Chelsea and Tottenham but the Premier League clubs have so far declined to make a move for the unsettled star due to his wage demands.
