Is Galatasaray’s gain United’s loss?

The proposed move of Wesley Sneijder to Manchester United which seem to last all through the previous two Summers finally seems to be at an end. 

The Dutch midfielder appears to have agreed a deal with Turkish side Galatasaray and if this picture is anything to go by then its all but finalised.

With all due respect to Galatasaray it seems such a shame and a waste that a player who was coveted by United for so long and who would no doubt have made a big impact at the Theatre of Dreams couldn’t take a pay cut to ply his trade in Manchester.

I’m not one for rumour and conjecture but it seems Sneijder was all but set for a move to M16 last season until his wage demands scuppered the deal. Galatasaray are a big Turkish club of that there’s little doubt but Sneijder could have played for one of the biggest clubs in the world and been a star for us. Ah well cest la vie and all that….
