Has Wesley Sneijder really been offered to QPR?
Inter Milan midfielder looks likely to leave Italy this month
Rumours this morning suggested Inter Milan star Wesley Sneijder had been offered by an agent to relegation-haunted QPR.
Harry Redknapp is quoted by The Sun as saying: "I was asked by one agent if I wanted to sign Sneijder.
"Of course I do. However, he's on about £200,000 a week and now he wants to join QPR?
"I won't name the agent, but let's just say I think a deal is unlikely."
However, a spoof BBC Sport Twitter account claims to have made up the quotes.
The BBC Sporf account tweeted this morning: "CRAZY: We created the Sneijder to QPR rumour last night, this morning it is The Sun newspaper main Sports headline!"
Despite the rumour appearing to have no basis, Sneijder does look likely to leave Inter Milan this month.
The Italian club have asked Sneijder to take a pay cut if he wants to stay at the club, something he has not agreed to do.
The 28-year-old Netherlands international has been linked with a host of Premier League clubs, including Chelsea, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester United and Liverpool, as the Italian giants look to get him off their wage bill.
