Inter Milan’s Wesley Sneijder’s odds of signing for Liverpool this month have been slashed to 2/1.
The talented midfielder has been long linked with Manchester United but demanding wages and a stubborn refusal to play for his club have put off the Manchester side. A deal for Galatasary still looks his most likely destination, but the player has given the Merseyside club impetus to claim his signature. Metro reported that Sneijder said: “It’s not a question of money. Look, like all of the players who have to decide what to do and where to go before Jan. 31, I have that time. I’m not in a rush and I won’t be rushed.”
Brendan Rodgers now looks to declaring a more concrete interest in Sneijder after BetVictor cut their odds on the Dutchman joining the Rodgers revolution at Anfield. Rodgers has consistantly maintained that his team is a ‘work in progress’ but perhaps after the 2-1 defeat to Manchester United, where star striker Luiz Suarez remained isolated for much of the game, the Liverpool manager has reconsidered signing a star attacking midfielder who could give new signing Daniel Sturridge and fans favourite Suarez some much needed service.
The deocrated midfielder won the Italian League, Cup and Champions League treble with Inter in an extraordinary 2010.
The club sold Charlie Adam to Stoke City last summer in an attempt to cut the wage bill and now appear serious about filling the hole left by the Scotsman with an energetic and creative midfielder who can take Liverpool to the next level.
