Wesley Sneijder: Pondering Galatasaray offer

Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder will tell Galatasaray inside the next 24 hours if he wants to join them, according to the Turkish club's director of sport.

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 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 St 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.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
