There are reports Anzhi will offer Wesley Sneijder €10m per season to join his former Inter teammate Samuel Eto’o in Russia this month.
The club already broke records by signing Eto’o from the Nerazzurri over the summer for €25m with a three-year contract thought to be worth €20m after tax per season.
According to reports on Sportmediaset today, Anzhi are back in contact with Inter and ready to swoop for Sneijder as well.
The Russian transfer window does not close until February 24, so theoretically they could sign him before the end of the month.
Sneijder also spoke to Dutch television and did not close the door to a transfer away from San Siro.
“I always look out for what could happen and never shut down any option,” said the midfielder.
“I am happy at Inter, but we’ll see what happens. I am not in contact with any other clubs and if a side had made an offer on the last day of the transfer window, I could’ve left.
“I can’t know where I will be playing next year. I have thought about the United States, but in future. As for Manchester United, I see everything that goes on around me, as I’m not blind, but there were never any concrete negotiations.”
