Liverpool Head Chase for Fantastic £17m Playmaker With Incredible Vision

Rafa looks interested in bringing in some Dutch talent!

The Rumour

Wesley SNEIJDER

Tottenham and Liverpool are among Premiership clubs watching Wesley Sneijder’s situation at Real Madrid.

Sneijder is expected to be pushed out of Real this summer following the arrivals of AC Milan star Kaka and Manchester United’s Cristiano Ronaldo.

It’s emerged that Ronaldo has been offered No9 and Sneijder’s No10 shirt in a sure sign the Dutchman has no future at the Bernabeu.

Tottenham and Liverpool are heading a queue of clubs keen to sign the ex-Ajax star.

The Analysis

With Real Madrid openly admitting that their entire Dutch contingent were available for transfer it’s not surprising that Liverpool, a team who seems to have a number of players the La Liga side wants, is the latest to be linked with the Holland internationals.

Wesley Sneijder is an ultra talented playmaker who’s abilities mean that he can play expertly in a number of roles across the midfield, out wide and behind the strikers and if Madrid are stupid enough to let a talent like this go then Rafa, or indeed any other manager, would be foolish to refuse.

When the Ajax man first arrived at the Bernabeu he was considered one of the best players on the planet but even though he started brightly and helped the club to a La Liga title in his first season there has been something missing in his performances. He looked very ordinary when he came up against the Merseyside outfit in the Champions League last season but at 25 still has a lot to offer.

The Likelihood

Sneijder to Liverpool: A move to Anfield is only likely if Alonso were to leave the club.
