Wesley Sneijder plays down Liverpool rumours

Wesley Sneijder has dismissed rumours that he was on the verge of joining Liverpool this summer.

Sneijder was asked about a potential move to the Premier League outfit in the build up to the Netherlands World Cup 2014 qualification game against Estonia which will be played on Friday 6 September.

"It's obviously great to be linked with a club as big as Liverpool," Sneijder said.

"However, they have not played Champions League football for a few seasons and I am happy here at Galatasaray."

Galatasaray also recently rejected an offer from Manchester United for Sneijder according to the Lion's Sportive Coordinator Bülent Tulun.

”Sneijder received an indirect offer from Manchester United two-weeks ago but it was not accepted," Tulun told Milliyet.

“There are several clubs that want him [Sneijder] but just like we can't let go of Burak [Yilmaz] we also have to keep hold of Sneijder.”

Sneijder joined Galatasaray from Inter Milan for €7.5 million last January. The Dutch international played an important role in Inter's historic treble winning season - winning the Serie A, Copa Italia and Champions League titles.

The 29-year-old playmaker has five goals and one assist in 20 appearances for the 2012-13 Turkish Süper Lig champions.
