Juventus and Manchester United target Sneijder to remain in Istanbul
Wesley Sneijder who has been closely linked with a move to Juventus will remain at Galatasaray according to his agent Guido Albers.
The Netherlands international was at the top of the Juventus manger Massimiliano Allegri wish list. The former AC Milan manager was after a playmaker who had experience in Serie A and knowledge of the Italian language.
According to Albers, Galatasaray have no intention of selling their star man despite the delicate financial situation at the club.
“He would have been happy to move to Juventus, it is true,” Albers told the Italian newspaper Tuttosport.
“But only if Galatasaray had decided to sell him. In that case he would have welcomed the offer of Juventus.
“He is not a traitor, my client. He does not have two faces. He has showed the greatest respect towards his club and Juve.
“Wesley is happy to stay in Turkey, as well as he would have been happy to move to Turin, if Galatasaray had decided to sell him.
“Galatasaray declared him unsellable.”
Sneijder had been closely linked with a move to Juventus and Manchester United but Galatasaray rejected the offers.
The 30-year-old joined Galatasaray from Inter in 2013 for €8 million and still has just under two-years left on his contract.
Sniejder has scored four goals in 22 appearances for Galatasaray this season including two against Fenerbahce in the intercontinental derby.
