Wesley Sneijder’s agent has dismissed suggestions he has already agreed to join Turkish side Galatasaray and stressed his client has not yet made a decision over his future.

Inter have accepted an offer from the Turkish giants, but Sneijder is still hoping for a switch to the English Premier League.

Both Liverpool and Tottenham Hotspur have been consistently linked with the Holland international, though if there are no concrete signs a switch to England could happen, Sneijder will have a big decision to make.

"We have not talked about a contract with Galatasaray, so there cannot yet be any agreement", Sneijder’s agent Soren Lerby told Dutch magazine Voetbal International.


"Anything is possible.

"In the next period we will put all the offers side by side and then it will be up to Wesley and Yolanthe [Sneijder’s wife, ed.] to make a choice.

"Until this time, Wesley will benefit from taking his time to make the right decision."

Sneijder has been frozen out at Inter due to his refusal to sign a new contract with the Serie A side.

The fresh deal would mean a wage cut from €6M per year to €4M per year.

Were he to agree to join Galatasaray, the Turkish champions would pay him at his current rate at Inter, meaning no pay cut would be needed on the part of the talented playmaker.
