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.

    We know he said (not Word for Word): I will do What Inter tell me to do….Me and My wife love milan, I’ll be dissapointed IF I’m sold, but IF they deside to sell me for an offer they can’t refuse imight leave….
    there have allso not been ANY formal offers, and IF it’s true the ONLY reason he won’t move is that he won’t go from 200 grand to 170 grand a week, than it can’t REALLY be his “dream move” now, can it… Just leave it alone!

    he said he cut his wages from 200 grand and he said he cut by 60 grand if it meant he gets a move to United, so hes willing to be payed 140,000 to play for Manchester United, so it can be his dream move.

    We need a player of sneijders quality and presence…if wesley wanted his dream move that bad he would have signed by now,or this might be another dimitar berbatov saga that went on for so long before the last seconds of the transfer window closed…I think our youth are more than cabable but if we played barca(bench Mark) again could we compete?????

    I don’t care what he wants anymore.
    He’s blown his chance and regrets it bitterly.

    Utd don’t need Sneijder. You know why? They have just secured the extended services of Park. That would be the same JS Park who is, sadly, technically-challenged and skill-deprived. They also seem to have “retained ” ( read: nobody wants him) Gibson. So, cheer up Utd fans. 1-3 scoreline last May against Barca was flattering. And this time around, without any real good player like Sneijder, Utd won’t get that far. QF if lucky.

    Truth is, our youth mid can pull it through in EPL no doubt. But when it comes to Europe (Barca and Madrid specifically) we don’t stand a chance. By now we know Park, Carrick, and Giggs can’t handle Barca. Cleverly is a great prospect but you still need established mid. Sorry but Thiago from Barca is more skilled and they still bought Fabregas. If SAF truly wants to “knock Barca out of Europe” he either needs established mid (to stand a chance) or hope that Madrid and Barca can be knocked out by other teams.
