sneijderGalatasaray has given Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder a deadline of 24 hours to decide if he wants to accept or reject the club’s transfer offer.

“Sneijder will give us a response inside 24 hours, but in 99 percent of these cases the transfer negotiations are already done,” Galatasaray director Bulent Tulun told Turkish radio station Radyospor, as quoted in the Gazzetta dello Sport.

Inter president Massimo Moratti confirmed that Inter had accepted a €10m for the midfielder.

“Galatasaray’s offer satisfies us. Now it depends on the player,” Moratti told Sky Sports. “We would be happy if he decided to stay on our terms.”

Wesley Sniejder Wage Demands Hampering Any Deal

sneijder2It seemed a certainty that Dutch star Wesley Sneijder would leave Inter Milan this month, but his proposed transfer to the Premier League is running into a snag over Sneijder’s high wage demands.

Reports out of the UK say that both Inter approached both Arsenal and Chelsea about taking the 28-year-old midfielder, but they both turned down the offer after hearing that Sneijder wanted wages of £200,000-a-week. It was Sneijder’s high wage demands that killed his £30m proposed move to Manchester United 18 months ago.

Spurs To Grab Wesley Sneijder For Bargain Price Of £10m

sneijderIt was only 18 months ago that Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder was linked with a £25m move to Manchester United. That move fell apart reportedly due to Sneijder’s high wage demands and it looks like Spurs are about to capitalize.

Sneijder, who has not played since September, has been involved in a pay dispute with Inter Milan. Inter basically wanted Sneijder to accept a new contract at a lower wage, and Sneijder, whose current deal has two more years to go, said no.

With the stalemate, Sneijder sat and watched Inter from the stands with the understanding that eh would be sold in January at a cut-rate price of around £10m.

Antonio Cassano launches scathing attack on Antonio Conte

Inter Milan striker Antonio Cassano has launched a scathing attack on Juventus boss Antonio Conte.

“He’s suspended for failing to report match-fixing. If he talks to me about morality then it’s the end of the world.”

The row erupted after Conte was asked about Cassano during an online chat with fans, suggesting he was “all talk” and not the kind of player he wanted in Turin.

“Conte said I’m all talk? I’m not the one who is suspended for failing to report match-fixing…” the Inter striker told Sport Mediaset.

Giuseppe Rossi Heading To Inter Milan

The transfer of American born striker Giuseppe Rossi from Villarreal to Inter Milan looks set to be completed in the January transfer window according to reports from Italy.

Rossi is said to have already agreed to a four-year €14 million contract and all that is left is Inter and Villarreal to agree on the transfer fee.

Rossi has suffered two cruciate ligament injuries in the past 18 months and he has not played a league game in 13 months. But his agent Federico Pastorello is confident he still has the ability to cut it at the top level in his home country.

Moratti: Stramaccioni is just good

Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti heaped praise on the club’s young manager Andrea Stramaccioni following Saturday’s 3-1 win over Juventus.

The 36-year-old Italian masterminded the victory which saw Inter come from behind to end Juventus’ 49-game unbeaten run in Serie A at the Juventus Stadium.

“After 17 seconds I was worried that we’d got off to a bad start, then when I saw it was offside I thought it’s the same old story. Our players did very well to respond to an injustice like that,” Moratti told Premium Calcio’s Serie A Live programme.

Inter Milan End Juve’s Unbeaten Streak

Diego Milito scored twice to end Juventus’s 49-match unbeaten Serie A run on Saturday and lift Inter Milan to within a point of the Serie A leaders.

This was an impressive win by Inter and their young manager Andrea Stramaccioni as Inter kept their composure and overcame more horrendous refereeing. Besides conceding an obvious goal inside the opening minutes that was clearly offside, the referee followed that up by not sending Juventus player Lichtsteiner off inside the opening 30 minutes. I wondered is this was not going to be Inter’s day. But the team showed great poise and character to stay in the game and not let their heads go down.

Saturday Review: Inter End Juve’s Unbeaten Streak

Diego Milito struck twice to end Juventus’s 49-match unbeaten Serie A run and lift Inter Milan to within a point of the leaders on a night when AC Milan scored five.

The Derby d’Italia could not have started better for Juve as there were ahead after only 18 seconds. But the goal was not without controversy as it Kwadwo Asamoah was beyond the last Inter defender when he received the ball from Claudio Marchisio’s touch, and it was his low cross which was met by Vidal at the far post to put the home team in front

Strama: ‘Inter Has To Ignore Juventus Match’

Andrea Stramaccioni tries to keep Inter focused on Sampdoria just days ahead of their clash with Juventus.

The Nerazzurri are on stunning form going into Saturday night’s Derby d’Italia, but first face a wounded Samp side.

“I think Sampdoria started well, but have only slowed down recently in terms of results rather than performances,” argued the Coach in his Press conference.

“I therefore await a side that wants to turn around that negative trend by making the most of the characteristics that can cause us problems.”

Inter Crashed Out of Europe In a Tragic Way

Inter Milan suffered a rather tragic exit from their Champions League campaign as Claudio Ranieri’s side went out from the competition in the last minute of the match courtesy of the away goal rule.

The former treble winner actually won their match in midweek 2-1, but their opponent, Marseille, were the ones having the last laugh as Didier Deschamps’ team went through because of the away goal they scored.
