Gala Open to Sneijder Sale

MOST COMMENTED

Galatasaray is open to selling Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder, club president Unal Aysal revealed. Sneijder joined the Turkish champion in January and helped the club reach the UEFA Champions League quarterfinals. “I have been following the rumours about Sneijder, but we have not received an offer for him,” Aysal told Turkish paper Sabah. “If an offer in the region of €15 million ($20 million) comes in, we might decide to sell him though.” Reports have linked Chelsea and Tottenham with the former Netherlands captain.

Sneijder’s stock has fallen steadily since he helped Inter Milan to the Serie A, Italian Cup and Champions League trophies in 2010. After losing the Dutch captaincy to Manchester United striker Robin van Persie, the 29-year-old admitted that he has not been at his best recently: “It was a pretty painful announcement. Not just because I never saw this coming, but also because I have always given my all in the role as captain. I will have to accept this, though. It was a huge blow for me. The coach told me that I should focus on myself for now and use my energy to regain top fitness.”
