Heynckes dismisses Sneijder rumours
Dec 06, 2012 7:20 PM GMT
Jupp Heynckes has laughed off rumours Bayern Munich are interested in signing Netherlands international Wesley Sneijder from Inter Milan.
The attacking midfielder is unhappy at the Giuseppe Meazza side due to an ongoing contract dispute, but Bayern have no intention of making a move for Sneijder according to the Bayern head coach.
"There's absolutely no truth in these reports. If we would sign every player who's being linked with a move to Bayern, we would end up with more players than Wolfsburg," Heynckes told TZ.
Sneijder has a contract with Inter until 2015, but a transfer seems inevitable following his refusal to accept a pay-cut.
The former Real Madrid star was allegedly close to joining Manchester United two seasons ago, and is now being linked with clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain, Anzhi Makhachkala and Fenerbahce, although the latter have revealed a transfer is not an option.
"We can say that, as of now, our interest in Sneijder is zero. If there is any, it is without my knowledge and I have no comment," coach Aykut Kocaman told Radyspor.
"As of now, we have not made any attempts to transfer anyone. However, on the other hand, we are going through a critical and delicate period."
