Turkish giants Galatasaray expect Wesley Sneijder to give them a yes or no decision within 24 hours.

The Super Lig champions have had an offer of €10M accepted by Inter for Sneijder, while they are also willing to match his current €6M per year wages.

Sneijder though, who has been frozen out at Inter for refusing to take a pay cut, is holding out for a switch to the English Premier League, where he has a number of suitors.

Galatasaray though want to know quickly whether the Dutchman is prepared to move to the Turk Telekom Arena and now expect to hear from Sneijder within 24 hours.


"We are waiting for Sneijder’s answer", Galatasaray sporting director Bulent Tulun told Radyospor, "and it should be within 24 hours.

"Hopefully we will succeed."

Sneijder has gone on record as stating that he is looking for a "beautiful transfer" this month, as he seeks to end what is an uneasy situation at Inter.

Were Galatasaray able to convince the former Real Madrid player to move to Turkey, they would have secured a genuine coup.
