The rumour linking Wesley Sneijder with a January move to Spurs has dominated the headlines over the Christmas period and as we head into the New Year, there are mixed stories as to how much truth there is in these reports.
Speaking on Talksport, the station’s Italian football expert Tancredi Palermi claimed that a deal was close and he took to Twitter to give his opinion.
“Here the big market news: Sneijder agreed deal with Tottenham. and ready to move London asap. Waiting for Inter and Spurs to agree terms,” Palermi said.
However, the player’s representatives have moved to deny the claims.
“There is nothing, absolutely nothing true about that,” Sneijder’s man is quoted in Algemeen Dagblad.
That article also concludes with details of Sneijder’s salary – some ten million Euros a year and at present this seems to be a case of reality versus one man’s supposedly ITK opinion.
