Wesley Sneijder rejects Liverpool transfer talk

Published Add your comment

Wesley Sneijder has admitted it’s great to be linked with Liverpool – but played down the chance of moving to Anfield.

The Dutch playmaker is back in the international fold and could feature for his country against Estonia in a World Cup qualifier on Friday night.

But, before that clash, the 29-year-old found himself linked with a move away from Galatasaray, with reports claiming Manchester United boss David Moyes attempted to bring the player to Old Trafford.

However, it was questions about Liverpool that the former Inter Milan star had to answer, and whilst the attacking midfielder was complimentary towards the Reds, he revealed that he wasn’t interested in a move away from Turkey.

"It's obviously great to be linked with a club as big as Liverpool," said Sneijder, according to Turkish-Football.

"However, they have not played Champions League football for a few seasons and I am happy here at Galatasaray."

Liverpool haven’t been linked with a move for Sneijder for some time in the British press, and manager Brendan Rodgers took his business elsewhere during the summer transfer window.

Luis Alberto, Iago Aspas and Victor Moses were all drafted in to boost the Reds’ attack, and whilst Sneijder would have been a headline-grabbing addition, the Anfield outfit appear well set without the former Ajax starlet.
