Anfield side hope to lure San Siro midfielder to Merseyside.
Liverpool have made a sensational late bid to hijack Wesley Sneijder’s move to Galatasaray according to the http://www.mirror.co.uk/sport/football/transfer-news/liverpool-make-late-bid-to-hijack-1532016.
Anfield boss Brendan Rodgers apparently believes his side have a good chance of tempting the 28 year old Dutch international into making a move to Merseyside.
Sneijder is apparently in talks with Galatasaray but discussions have hit a deadlock over the former Ajax and Real Madrid midfelder’s wage demands.
The talented playmaker is on £160,000 a week at the San Siro and is not willing to take anything other than a minor pay-cut, indeed it’s those salary expectations that led to any new offer from his current employers being shelved in favour for attempts to sell Sneijder so as to have his pay wiped off the balance sheet, hence Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti willing to accept a relatively low fee for the former Champions League winner and World Cup runner-up.
Liverpool managing director Ian Ayre is discussing the details of any offer with the club’s Boston-based owners to see just what kind of personal terms the club can offer the experienced world-class talent.
A successful move by Liverpool to land such a big name would be something of a statement of intent by the club’s American owners, who have been reticent about offering Rodgers the same level of transfer funding they freely gave to predecessor Kenny Dalglish.
