Galatasaray’s Wesley Sneijder Offered To Milan
Sneijder could move to former club’s city rivals.
Galatasaray’s midfielder Wesley Sneijder is looking to leave Turkey, and has now reportedly offered himself to Serie A side Milan.
The Dutch ace is due to terminate his contract with Galatasaray on Tuesday and was set to return to Italy with his agent confirming that preliminary talks have been held with Sampdoria. “Wesley wants Sampdoria. At the moment they’re his priority among the many potential solutions abroad, ” his agent Guido Albers told Il Secolo XIX.
However, the Blucerchiati coach Marco Giampaolo is said to be the one responsible for stopped the deal as the boss was fairly unconvinced by Sneijder’s current tactical level.
As a result, Sneijder’s entourage has recently contacted Milan and offered them the player’s services, according to sportface.it. The former Inter man is reportedly willing to take a pay cut and even risk sitting on the bench for a move back to the city of Milan. Although the Rossoneri could get him on a cut-price deal, they have taken some time on deciding whether to sign the 33-year-old.
Sneijder, who is the leading appearance-maker for Netherlands on 131 caps, has represented Galatasaray for the last five seasons – scoring 45 times in 173.
