'I won't be rushed': Manchester United and Arsenal among clubs who must wait for Wesley Sneijder to make decision
Inter Milan midfielder in no hurry to make decision on future
Manchester United, Arsenal, Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool have all been linked with a move for Wesley Sneijder, however they will all have to wait for the unsettled Dutch midfielder to make a decision on his future.
The Inter Milan midfielder appears certain to leave the Serie A side this month having fallen out with the club's hierarchy over a refusal to renegotiate his current contract. The 28-year-old has not featured for the first team since September and was released by the club two games before the Italian winter break.
A move to Galatasaray looked in the offing when the Turskish side agreed a reported 10million euro deal with Inter Milan, however talks between the club and the player did not lead to a switch.
Galatasaray made clear they wanted the deal wrapped up by last weekend, and although it wasn't, it's understood an offer remains on the table for the playmaker.
However, Sneijder appears to be holding out for new offers, with a number of sides in the Premier League linked with a move for the the Netherlands international.
"Look, all the players in this market period must decide what to do and where to go by January 31, and I will too," Sneijder told Gazzetta dello Sport.
"I'm not in a rush and I won't be rushed.
"After everything I have done I don't want to feel like this, almost forced to choose in a short time on a major step in my life."
A stumbling block to any deal could be Sneijder's wage demands, which have been reported as £200,000-a-week, yet the player himself says money will not be a driving force in his decision.
"No, it is not a question of money," he said.
