Inter Milan have accepted a bid from Turkish club Galatasary for Dutch international Wesley Sneijder, the BBC reports on Thursday.
Galatasary are thought to be prepared to pay €10m for the midfielder and meet his wage demands, the broadcaster said. Sneijder has been sidelined at Inter for the past two months because of a dispute over his contract.
‘Galatasary’s offer satisfies us. Now it depends on the player,’ Inter president Massimo Moratti is quoted as saying. It is unclear if the Dutchman will agree to make the move to Turkey, having said earlier he will only consider a top European team.
However, the Telegraaf reports the move may have gone sour anyway, because of a racy film his wife starred in years ago.
The paper says some Turks are upset by the 10-minute video Turkse Chick in which Yolanthe Cabau played a Turkish girl who seduces a youth in the woods. The film was made in 2006, before Cabau was involved with Sneijder.
