Holland midfielder Wesley Sneijder could leave Galatasaray and become a new Juventus player very soon, according to Tuttosport.
Reportedly, Juventus offered a year and a half long contract worth 4.5 million in total, but the Turkish club wants eight million euros for the transfer. The catch in this seemingly nonsensical claim is that Juventus board relies on Sneijder’s discontent with a fact that payments in Galatasaray are irregular, so he is not getting paid on time and he could have a right to break the deal.
Negotiating team from Torino is, currently, discussing terms just with Sneijder and his agents, and they have sent a message to the Dutchman that he should become a free agent as soon as possible, so the deal could be concluded promptly and with more financial interest for the player and his agent.
At the first sight, Galatasaray wouldn’t like to lose their top player, especially without receiving fee, but they may be in bigger problems if Sneijder decides to sue the club because of the delayed payments. The deal should be clearer very soon, since Juventus is looking for Xherdan Shaqiri as well, and they are not the only one interested in Bayern forward – Inter, their first opponent in the new half season of Serie A, is also looking to accompany the Swiss with Lucas Podolski.
