Wesley Sneijder says that he won’t be rushed into any decision about his future as the deadline set by Galatasary passed without any commitment from the Dutch international on where he will next play.
The Turkish giants have agreed a €10m deal with Inter Milan to sign the play maker and had said they wanted a decision from the player by yesterday.
Speaking on Sunday after Inter’s 2-0 win over Pescara, Sneijder said he wouldn’t be moved by any such demand, “It is a big decision I have to take, so I don’t think it will be made by Monday.
“There are still two weeks to go before the end of the transfer window, so there is time. I am relaxed and I’m considering my options.”
The waiting game seems to have paid off though as the Dutch press are now reporting that Liverpool have entered the bidding, offering close to €10m for Snijder and though he would earn significantly less than the €6m a year reported by the Turkish press in England it is thought he would prefer a Premier League club.
Manchester United, Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur have all previously showed interest in the player’s services but were put off by excessive wage demands and a refusal by Inter to sell at a cut price.
With the Italian club now happy to cash in it appears Liverpool may benefit from Sneijder’s waiting game.
The 28 year old has only made five appearances this season for the 2009 Champions League winners as he has fallen out of favour with the club’s bosses after refusing a wage cut.
