Inter Milan goalkeeper Julio Cesar has told reporters he hopes Wesley Sneijder and Samuel Eto’o stay at the club next season, with the stopper going so far as to insist that the two stars make the difference between winning and losing.
''I hope that Sneijder and Eto'o remain at the club. These are the two that are making the difference. If you want to win again, you will not sell those two,” Cesar said.
Rumours linking Manchester United to Sneijder appeared to be cooling at the end of last week, with Sir Alex Ferguson continually denying that any talks were taking place.
But this week Sneijder admitted that preliminary talks had in fact taken place with United, and the playmaker expected to be sold by Inter if the offer was high enough.
Personal terms appear to be the problem in thrashing out a deal between Sneijder and United. While the English club can afford the £32 million transfer fee, claimed by the Daily Mirror, United will be looking at having to fork out £250,000 a week in wages, an amount that no other Manchester United player currently earns.
