Not surprisingly the agent for Inter Milan’s Wesley Sneijder, Soren Lerby, says that his client would be interested in a move to a top Premier League. The question is whether any of the top Premier League clubs are interested in Sneijder due to his high wage demands.
Sneijder had been linked with a move to Queens Park Rangers, where his former teammate Julio Cesar is. But Lerby says that the Dutch star is “absolutely not interested” in joining QPR.
Speaking to BBC Sport Lerby said:
“He is absolutely not interested in QPR and we haven’t heard directly from anyone there.
“England probably has the top league in Europe, so it could appeal, but Wes would want to play for a top team.”
Inter Milan have told Sneijder, 28, that they will not play him unless he agrees to a big salary cut. The Dutch midfielder has refused, meaning he has not played since 25 September, despite having been fit for the past two months.
Lerby went on to say:
“Wesley is one of the best midfielders in Europe. He is fully recovered from injury and just loves to play football, so we need to find a solution to his situation with Inter.
“It’s a very, very strange situation for all of us. We should know a lot more in the next week to 10 days.”
It’s a very interesting situation with Sneijder in that there appears to be no market at any of the top clubs for him at £200,000-a-week wages.
The only team that appears to be willing to meet Sneijder’s wage demands are Anzhi, but Sneijder has repeatedly turned down a move to the Russian side.
So it looks like if Snijder is going to move this month, he needs to lower his wage demands. And if he is going to do that, why not just stay at Inter, who want him, albeit at a lower wage?
