In what is fast becoming one of the swiftest player declines in recent history, it remains unclear as to where Wesley Sneijder will find himself come February with a proposed move to Galatasaray now looking unlikely.
The Dutchman was supposedly close to a Turkish switch but has stalled on the deal in recent days, putting the move in danger of collapse.
Brendan Rodgers’ Liverpool have been touted as a secondary option for the Inter midfielder, but the Northern Irishman has been quick to dismiss such speculation (via Metro):
“You could probably rattle off about 20 names and the answer would be the same. The club have been linked with a whole host of players, but I couldn’t see that [Sneijder] happening.
There’s no doubt we need to support the group. We had 20 players training this morning, of which some of those are our younger players, so we know we need to reinforce and top up the group. That’s something we’ll look to do.”
Having not featured for I Nerazzurri since September, it would seem that Sneijder’s Inter tenure is close to its end, a shame considering the 28-year-old was once, and still is looked at by some, as one of the world’s premier playmakers.
