Juve closer to Sneijder, but…

Galatasaray have lowered their demands for Wesley Sneijder's transfer to Juventus, but negotiations are still under way.

The player himself is said to have already agreed terms with the Bianconeri, and the Turkish club are seen to have come down significantly from their initial asking price of €20m.

However, today's edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport reports that there is still a significant gap between Gala and Juve on the valuation.

Where the Super Lig side are seen to now be asking for around €12-13m for the Dutchman, the Old Lady are reported by the Gazzetta as still offering a lower bidding price of €6-7m, potentially across instalmenets, whilst looking to an initial loan fee of no more than €1m.

Tuttosport, on the other hand, are quoting Galatasaray's demands to be no lower than €15m, with the Italian offer reaching a maximum €7.5m.

While there are no official figures yet, it does seem that the two clubs may be coming closer to an agreement as the offer and the demand are closer to each other.

According to Tuttosport, the Sneijder’s agent will be meeting the Turkish club today to reiterate the player's desire to join Juventus, while the Italian giants will be meeting with intermediaries to try and reach an agreement.
