Moratti: Sneijder is close to Galatasaray
Jan 20, 2013 3:54 PM GMT
Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti says Wesley Sneijder is 'closer to Galatasaray now' but admitted he could still stay with the Serie A side.
The Netherlands international has been dragging his heels over a possible move to Turkey ever since the sides agreed a 10 million-euro transfer fee at the beginning of the month, but Moratti has revealed progress has been made after he met with the player in person.
"We needed this meeting and it was pleasant," he told Sky Italia. "There is still a small chance that Sneijder could stay. Is he closer to Galatasaray now? I think so, yes."
Sneijder echoed Moratti's sentiments, adding: "I have loved and do love this team. The Inter fans are the most important thing for me.
"I cannot talk about the negotiations right now, but I agree with the president’s words."
