Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder is still no nearer to finding a new club despite being urged into making a quick decision by club President Massimo Moratti, according to the Daily Mail.
On Monday Moratti set Sneijder a deadline to decide on his future by the end of the day, but that period has been and gone with the creative Dutchman still undecided on his next move.
He had been heavily linked with a move to Turkish outfit Galatasaray, to the point of his club accepting a reported £8.3 million bid, but the move stalled and we reported nearly a week ago that he preferred a move to the Barclay’s Premier League instead.
Now the Dutchman appears to be waiting for an 11th hour bid, possibly from a top Premier League team. Manchester United have been heavily linked with the player in the past, but were deterred by his £200,000-a-week wage demands.
However, the potential of landing Sneijder for a knock-down £8 million might be a tempting proposition for United manager Sir Alex Ferguson as he looks to inject quality to his midfield, with veterans Paul Scholes and Ryan Giggs nearing the end of their long playing careers.
Sneijder has been left out in the cold at Inter Milan and has not played since September after refusing to accept a wage-cut. He was released for the Serie A winter break two games ahead of the rest of the Inter squad as it becomes increasingly apparent that he will never play for the side again.
