Netherland midfielder Wesley Sneijder stay with the Turkey Galatasaray this season, although there is speculation that he would leave the club following his impressive performances in the World Cup, the club’s president said on Tuesday (29/7).
Galatasaray will attempt to give a big impact in the Champions League this season after signing former Italy coach Cesare Prandelli as their new coach. “Sneijder will stay with Galatatasaray,” said club president Unal Aysal, as quoted by Turkish media.
“It’s not just our opinion, but Cesare Prandelli and the player. There is no discussion that divides between us.”
“He had a grueling season and immediately after that he played in the World Cup. He will be back to join us after the holiday.” Aysal previously said that the club will sell Sneijder only if there is a club is willing to meet the requirements of the release clause of 20 million euros. Sneijder, who brought Galatasaray from Inter Milan in 2013, has been linked with a move to French club AS Monaco or League giants Manchester United or Chelsea.
Before the confirmation of the club, Wesley Sneijder had reported that he would join manager Louis van Gaal in Manchester United. Sneijder said at that time that van Gaal will leave a room for him in the new club. Manchester United as recently said by van Gaal is a broken team, he inherited it from the previous manager and admit that he needs time to asses the players in his system.
