    Inter Milan have accepted a bid from Galatasaray for midfield playmaker Wesley Sneijder (via BBC Sport).

    Gala, the defending Turkish champions, will reportedly pay Inter €10 million for Sneijder and match his salary demands.

    Inter president Massimo Moratti said: "Galatasaray's offer satisfies us. Now it depends on the player."

    Sneijder, 28, has been involved in a contract dispute with Inter. In November, the club told Sneijder he would not play again until he took a paycut. He declined and has not played since.

    Sneijder joined Inter from Real Madrid in 2009.

    Ronaldo hit a hat-trick as Real crushed Celta Vigo 4-0 in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday. After the match, he fielded questions from reporters about a possible move to PSG.

    He said: "I am not going to talk now about other clubs. I have a contract and am fine here, but in the world of football anything is possible."

    Earlier this week, PSG director of football Leonardo de Araujo expressed similar sentiments, saying "anything is possible" for the Qatari-backed club (via Marca).

    He said: "PSG has become the club where anything's possible. Ronaldo has a long contract with Real Madrid and you don't just leave the club like that. There is nothing specific; there's no contact."

    M'Vila, a 22-year-old defensive midfielder, has been capped 22 times by France. His reputation, however, has been hurt by a series of disciplinary issues.

    Earlier this week, Metro reported that Queens Park Rangers and Zenit St. Petersburg are interested in M'Vila. Arsenal, who were linked to the midfielder last summer, have reportedly not renewed their interest.
