Liverpool have lost out to Turkish team Galatasaray for the signature of Dutch Master Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan in a reported £6.5 million deal.
A statement on the club’s website read:
“The transfer of Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan has been agreed.”
“The conditions of the deal will be made public and the player will sign the contract after health checks.”
It was believed that Liverpool representatives were in tentative talks with the player but were put off by his exorbitant salary, believed to be upwards of €150,000 a week.
FSG have a policy of buying young talented footballers on realistic salaries with Daniel Sturridge the latest of these to arrive at Liverpool with an immediate impact.
So despite Stevie G’s public approval of the Dutchman, it fell on deaf ears with Sneijder and probably, also with Liverpool’s board of management.
I’m not too worried, our squad is starting to take shape and is ready to make a serious run towards fourth place this season.
