A few days back Inter Milan’s Wesley Sneijder issued a ‘come and get to me plea’ to the Premiership’s clubs. But with Dutch player’s weekly wages of £160,000 there didn’t appear to be any takers. Now, in spite of a possible deal with Turkish team Galatasaray, The Sunday People is reporting that Liverpool might be about to launch a bid for the player.
According to The People
Kop boss Brendan Rodgers thinks he has a good chance of luring the 28-year-old Holland star to the Premier League – even though Inter have already accepted an £8.2million deal from the Turkish side.
Sneijder, who has fallen out with Inter bosses, is stalling on the Gala deal because he would prefer to play in England – and Liverpool are ready to offer him the chance.
Apparently Kop managing director Ian Ayre has been talking to the club’s owners to see if a deal is possible. The Reds would be securing a world class player at a cheap price, well apart from those astronomical wages.
If Sneijder were to take a pay cut it would certainly spur Man United and Arsenal, both of whom have tried to sign the player in the past, into action.
Before Liverpool fans get too excited no other papers are running the story.
