So, What Does Sneijder Actually Want?

All he has to do, is say; “I, Wesley Sneijder, 27 year-old footballing Dutchman, can categorically deny that I will be leaving Inter Milan this summer.” Perhaps then, this epic adventure through newspapers, gossip sites, Twitter feeds and professional bullsh*tters’ “inside info”, which has taken Manchester United fans from optimism to pessimism and back, but led nowhere really very productive, can end once and for all.
It seems so simple, yet the tangled, messy web which all of the rumours mixed with a touch of fact as well as misinterpreted quotes, has created, continues to spew out further information with no real substance at all. But dare we disbelieve it? Dare we brush it aside as nonsense? For all we know, the latest rumour that Wesley Sneijder is desperate to leave Inter Milan for Manchester United is absolutely true.
The past few weeks have been far quieter on the Sneijder to United front, but unsurprisingly, this week, more has “emerged.” Sneijder has suddenly (and privately) changed his tune on a possible transfer away from Italy. Rather than see out the summer as an Inter player, quietly going about his business, he has (again, privately) stated that he wants a move.
He is “depressed,” and “desperate” that his dream transfer to Manchester United has not materialised and feels as if he can do something about it. He has finally come to understand that asking for £200,000 per week in wages is simply not feasible, nor acceptable at a club like United, and has offered to lower his wage demands in order to force through a move.
With me so far? Believe any of it? No worries, there’s only a little more to suffer through, as the final piece of the impossible puzzle is something Wesley will have to do in order to leave Inter; hand in a transfer request and force his way out.
As I said yesterday on Twitter, although I don’t know Sneijder personally, I cannot see him showing the disrespect and dishonour of handing in a transfer request to a club that have treated him so well and that he loves so much. He loves Inter, he loves their fans and he loves the City, we know all of those things, but a transfer request, which is effectively saying; “thanks for everything, but I don’t want to be here any more” would not be something I can see Sneijder doing.
Wayne Rooney did it, and look at the uproar among Manchester United fans it caused. Yes, he stayed, but it took a simply stunning overhead winner against United’s fiercest rivals to win back most fans who chant his name loyally, and pay his wages.
It seems as if Wesley Sneijder is happy to stay at Inter, and happy to join Manchester United. Lets face it, it isn’t a bad choice of clubs to play your football for, but if you really know what Wesley Sneijder wants and where he wants to play this season, you’ve either been told by the man himself, or are the man himself. The rest, are simply rumours.
