Galatasaray: '3-4 days for Sneijder'

Galatasaray President Unal Aysal told Turkish media the transfer fee agreed with Inter is €7.5m and “we’ll wait another three or four days for Wesley Sneijder.”

The midfielder today declared the pressure to make a decision quickly is “annoying” and he has until January 31 to choose his future.

Galatasaray do not see it that way and President Unal Aysal has been quoted in the Turkish media as setting a new ultimatum.

“We’ll wait another three or four days for Sneijder. If the deal collapses, then we have alternatives.

“The figures quoted in the media are wrong. Our deal with Inter is worth €7.5m. The player knows our proposal.

“Inter are now calculating things with Sneijder. Our offer for his wages is below €5.5m. It is also true that our Coach Fatih Terim wants Sneijder, as he is the first name on his list.

“I see no reason why the transfer should not go through. Even if it does collapse, it won’t be the end of the world,” concluded the Galatasaray President.
