To Accept Sneijder's Exorbinate Demands Would Have Set an Unstable Precedent
Wesley Sneijder is soon becoming a big fish in a shrinking San Siro pond, after the much-publiscised departure of Samuel Eto'o to Russia.
He had an escape route to Old Trafford, a step closer to regaining the coveted Champions League trophy he held two years back, yet he let greed rule his head.
In no way am i claiming that Manchester United are European heir's apparent, i am merely noticing them a couple of rungs further up the ladder than Inter Milan. Sneijder will, in all likelihood, finish this season empty handed.
For Alex Ferguson to have agreed to wages in line, or more than likely in excess of (taking into account Britains uber-rich taxation laws) that currently afforded to talisman Wayne Rooney, would have been to show desperation. The great Manchester United, held to ransom by a little man with a big ego.
The deal isn't' dead, and by resisting Sneijder's over-zealous demands the first time out, if they were to plow the avenue a second time the club would be doing so from a position of strength.
They, rather than Sneijder, would sit in the driving seat.
