Dutchman wants to end his playing career in the English top flight.
In-demand Galatasaray midfield player Wesley Sneijder wants to finally move to the Premier League this summer, according to reports in the Sunday Mirror.
The experienced Netherlands international only joined the Turkish champions from Serie A giants Inter Milan at the turn of the year on a three-and-a-half-year contract for a fee of just 7.5m euros.
And in the intervening six-month period, the hugely talented 29-year-old has managed to record five goals and one assist in his 17 matches in total in all competitions for Gala, including four strikes in his 13 league outings for the club, form which helped the Istanbul outfit win last season’s league title.
However, the playmaker has never hid his desire to one day play in the English Premier League, with Sneijder having come desperately close to joining Manchester United three years ago when manager Sir Alex Ferguson wanted the Dutchman to take over from Paul Scholes in the centre of the park at Old Trafford, only for the proposed transfer to fall through at the very last minute owing to the player’s massive wage demands.
But with the creative midfield player reportedly now available to buy for as little as £6m, then maybe new United boss David Moyes could be interested in reigniting the Red Devils’ interest in Sneijder before the window shuts on Sept 2.
