Inter president Massimo Moratti confirmed accepting a reported 10million euro bid for the unsettled Holland international after Galatasaray made their approach public on Tuesday.

Sneijder has cut an isolated figure at the San Siro this season, making just five league appearances and publicly refusing to accept a two million euro wage cut.

Turkish Superlig leaders Galatasaray are enjoying a three-week winter break but are eager to add Sneijder to their ranks before next week's trip to Kasimpasa.

Quoted in the Gazzetta dello Sport, Galatasaray director of sport Bulent Tulun told Turkish radio station Radyospor: "Sneijder will give us a response inside 24 hours, but in 99 per cent of these cases the transfer negotiations are already done."

Moratti broke the Serie A club's silence, confirming Inter were prepared to sell the man they signed from Real Madrid for 15million euros in 2009.

"Galatasaray's offer satisfies us. Now it depends on the player," Moratti told Sky Sports. "We would be happy if he decided to stay on our terms."

Sneijder has reportedly attracted the interest of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool and Tottenham, as well as ambitious Ligue 1 outfit Paris Saint Germain.

But unless a late counter-offer is made, the 28-year-old could end his three-and-a-half year association with Inter to become a Galatasaray player before the weekend.

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
