Galatasaray exit not on Sneijder's mind

Published Add your comment

Galatasaray playmaker Wesley Sneijder, a reported January transfer window target for Manchester United, claims to harbour no desire of leaving Istanbul before the deadline at the end of next month.

There has been growing speculation in recent weeks that the Netherlands international could pursue a move away from the Turkish champions when the window opens, and Old Trafford has been touted as a potential destination.

Sneijder very nearly joined Manchester United in the summer of 2011 and, over two years on, their need for a creative player of the Dutchman's calibre remains a pressing concern.

The 29-year-old, though, is not contemplating a move to Manchester United and says he will be happy once the window closes in order to stop the frequent conjecture about his future.

"You would know better than me if I received any offers. Up to now there are no offers," Sneijder told Beyaz TV.

"There are rumours about me in every transfer window. I look forward to the end of transfer windows so people stop taking about me. I'm very happy here with the team and the fans and I have no reason to leave.

"This type of news always happens. You just need to wait until the end of the window."

Manchester United are reported to be hoping to clinch a £10 million deal for Sneijder who, it is reported, would be willing to take a pay-cut to join the Premier League champions.
