Sneijder: Money not my motivation

Created on 16 Jan., 2013 5:40 PM GMT

Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder says money will play no part on whether or not he decides to join Galatasaray.

Club president Massimo Moratti urged the Netherlands international earlier this week to make up his mind quickly, but Sneijder has made it clear he will not be forced into make a rushed decision on his future.

"This is not about the money," Sneijder told La Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Like every player who could be on the move this window, I have to make a decision by January 31. I do not want to rush anything, and I don't like it how Inter have put pressure on me.

"I am almost being forced to make a rushed decision about my future at a crucial moment in my life. After all that's happened in the past few months, I feel that I do not deserve to be pressured like this."

Sneijder has not featured for Inter since September 2012 after he was frozen out over a contract dispute, and he is widely expected to leave San Siro.
