Wesley Sneijder has been handed a path out of Inter Milan after president Massimo Moratti confirmed an offer from Galatasaray has been accepted.

The Turkish side revealed on Tuesday that they had entered in discussions for the unsettled midfielder, who has not played for Inter since September amid a public stand-off over a proposed pay cut to his contract at San Siro.

The rift could now see the Holland international leave for Gala, who have reportedly offered 10million euros as well as agreeing to meet the player's demands.

"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 been asked to accept a two million euro pay cut to his annual salary with the Nerazzurri.

Inter head coach Andrea Stramaccioni has, however, maintained the the 28-year-old's continued absence from his first team is solely a tactical decision.

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

Sneijder's agent, Soren Lerby, had earlier denied Gala's claims that they had started talks, telling De Telegraaf: "Every day there is a new club linked with Wesley.

"For that reason I have decided not to answer any more questions."

A statement on the Turkish club's official website, galatasaray.org, read: "Galatasaray announces it has begun negotiations with FC Internazionale for the transfer of Wesley Sneijder.

"The public will be informed of developments."

Sneijder joined Inter in August 2009 after winning the Primera Division with Real Madrid during a two-season stint in Spain, going on to claim the Champions League trophy, Serie A title and Coppa Italia at the first time of asking before reaching the World Cup final with Holland, only to lose out to Spain.

hould have stayed because we carried him for 6.5 years. And then he has a breakthrough season, and was gone soon after. MU fans, you would be as disgusted had C Ronaldo left in 2007 and not 2009.
