Sneijder's wife: 'I love Istanbul!'

Wesley Sneijder’s wife has opened the door for a move to Galatasaray. “Istanbul is definitely nice! Have been there many times, love Turkey!”

This evening Galatasaray released a statement confirming negotiations have formally begun with Inter to sign Sneijder during the January transfer window.

Initial reports suggest a deal has been agreed with the Nerazzurri worth around €10m, but that the player is unconvinced at what he sees as a step down.

However, wife Yolanthe Cabau spoke to fans today on Twitter to discuss the new development.

“Istanbul is definitely nice! Have been there many times, love Turkey!” she wrote when asked about the city.

“But what will happen, I do not know… I can only say that Wes still loves Inter as much as he did before.”
