Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder has said he will not be pressured into making a decision over his future.
Sneijder is expected to leave Inter during the winter transfer window, after being embroiled in a contract dispute with a Italian side since September.
Galatasaray have had a bid accepted for Sneijder (rumored to be €7.5m), but Sneijder has yet to agree to terms with the Turkish side.
“All players on the move in this transfer window must decide what to do and where to go by the end of January. I’ll do the same,” Sneijder told Gazzetta dello Sport.
“I am in no hurry and I don’t want to rush this decision.”
Sneijder, who helped Inter claim a memorable treble in 2010, stressed the destination of his next move will not be determined by money.
“After what has happened in the last few months, in the context of having made football history with my team-mates, well, I don’t want to feel pressured,” he added.
“After what I did, I don’t want to feel this way – practically obliged to make such an important step in my life in a short space of time. It’s not a money matter.”
It is clear that Sneijder does not want to play for Gala. His career has taken him to Ajax, Real Madrid and Inter and the Dutch captain has made it no secret that he still wants to play for a big European club. That list of potential destinations then is pretty small; Man City, Man United, Liverpool, Chelsea, PSG and Bayern.
The question is whether any of those sides will hijack the Galatasaray move at the last minute or is their a possibility that Sneijder could stay at Inter with an extended contract?
