Manchester City have joined neighbours United in the hunt for Wesley Sneijder.
Reports in Italy suggest that a €36million deal has been struck to take the Inter Milan midfielder to the Etihad Stadium.
... Man City need a creative midfielder like him, plus he would proof that Fergie/Man Utd have made a mistake by not taking him. With Sneijder in the squad, I could seriously see Man City compete for the title.
True, Tevez, Dzeko and Aguero will score many goals with his through passes! I hope he get a PL switch, then I will get him in my Fantasy Team for sure :)
... but I'm waiting for Miyaichi to get his workpermit! :D Maybe Ruiz will move to Tottenham btw, so that should be a nice buy as well.
Let's be honest how many times have the press said a deal has been agreed for Sniejder. You just can't believe them and would be a fool if you did.
they already have david silva.. they dont realy need sniejder
... more an attack midfielder who comes from the side, like Pires used to do at Arsenal. Sneijder is someone who plays more central and a real playmaker.
heard some rumors we're getting Bastian instead, well that what I want lol not Sneijder since his age, wages and fee just put me off, or we should go with Gotze awesome player
@yi long i agree they are different but silva can do the same job as sniejder city are just to defensively minded to play him in that role @red devils yea i heard that too i'm hoping for bastian or nasri sniejder isnt worth the money we would have to pay out and we wouldnt even be able to sell him on as hes getting on a bit
Well I think this would be the best transfer City made
He wont join any club now. This reminds me of the Fabregas case.
If he does do this then I guess he really is money minded. I would have taken the smaller wage (which is still a lot of money) and played for United than make even more money and play for City.
Probably just a fake rumour to force United into a knee jerk reaction. Sneijder has no financial motivation to leave Inter.
God, so many class players just going to waste as city buy everyone going to win the league. I can understand buying a squad, but having 3 players for nearly every position is stupid especially because of the 25 man squad rule.
They also refuse to let any of their players go to any of the top 4-5 clubs in he PL.
