it seems that Galatasaray's president Ünal Aysal was in Milano for Sneijder.

i think that we should sell both Sneijder and Alvarez then invest on a quality regista. (We need a regista more than a BTB)

MILAN - FC Internazionale would like to announce that Wesley Sneijder has been called up for the 2013 African Cup of Nations and will therefore be unavailable to coach Andrea Stramaccioni for the next several weeks.

Aysal met Uncle Fester and it is reported for Djamel Mesbah and Luca Antonini.

First off, its reported that Galatasaray asked for Antonini yet Milan offered Mesbah to them, however Sky and Di Marzio reported that Milan blocked Zaccardo and will swap him with Mesbah.

Second off, Galatasaray is considering a signing creative number 10, just because they need a creative player and in addition, they are looking for a big player who can increase shirt sales and commercial revenue.This is why they are consider signing Sneijder.

i think that Gala needs more finisher, someone like Mkhitaryan than a passer like Wes. Cuz Gala lacks winger forwards who lacks finishing and working between the channels. They would have more fluid game with Mktitaryan.

I really wanna see what will happen if there are no buyers now & he ends up staying at Inter. I then wanna see what Branca clown comes out & says in public this time.

CafeCordoba
08 Jan 13, 09:45
Yeah. I also want to see what will happen in this saga when no real offers arrive. Soren Lerby (the agent) has been surely offering his client to every big club in Europe, but when the salary is talked about, the conversation is over very soon.

Sneijder is a prisoner of his salary. In the end we might end up paying him a hefty golden handshake so that we can get rid of the rest of his contract. Then he will sign for some club for free and accepts a lesser salary since he got already something from us to make it equal to his current higher salary.

Looks quite fucked up situation for Inter. But also for Sneijder since if we doesn't move in this window, he stays here till summer and we might suspend him like we're doing now. That's almost a year without football for mister Sneijder. He won't get that good offers anyway in that case despite clubs could sign him for free.

Ya. The situation is indescribably fucked. It doesn't help that Zanetti's saying shit like 'if Sneijder wants to stay a solution can be found' and 'Sneijder must be the first not to hold grudges'. Fucken :yao: how could you NOT hold grudges after this shit?

CafeCordoba
08 Jan 13, 10:04
Well, Zanetti is saying the truth. He can hold grudges, that's his right. But it hurts him, it doesn't help him. It's his choice. If he could accept a wage decrease, we could agree with him that he will be sold in the summer or even in this window. He can't get moved with that salary at least in this window.

Yeah lol, :lol: Basically a goat's fart has to me more credibility than everything anybody has ever said in this team in any interview. No matter how fucked a situation is, they all try to keep face & give some diplomatic answers, which of course everybody knows is bullshit.

:yao:

So, I stopped reading their interviews long time ago. Specially Moratti's, since he is the top bullshitter of the team.

All I wish now, is everybody to calm the fuck down & back the fuck off a little, have a sit down & put an end to all this misery. Everybody is tired of this crap being dragged over the months with no end in sight. Just come to a fucking agreement all together & let the boy play, god damn.

08 Jan 13, 11:54
honestly, the sneijder situation is unbelievably embarrassing to us. other clubs must be laughing at how amateurly this has been handled. we're acting like 3 year olds, not professionals. Its an utter, utter disgrace. In any other company in the world, you'd be fired if you caused this.

08 Jan 13, 12:57
There is some talk today of Sneijder using a clause to terminate his contract.

I can state that this will NOT happen.

1 - The recession requires the player to have performed in less than 10% of the club matches over the course of the season.

Sneijder has played 8 matches, which means we would have to play 80 matches for him to terminate.


If the decision is made by minutes, Sneijder has played 616 minutes. This is just under 7 full matches - and Inter will not play 70 competitive matches this season.

I think freezing him out of the squad in the first place is moronic. But, after the January transfer window, if we're unable to sell him and he remains on the team and we still freeze him out of the squad, then our entire management team should all find a new line of work.

We're paying Wes regardless. We can pay him to play and try and contribute something to our lackluster play or we can pay him to sit at home. So much talk about FFP, becoming financially stable, decreasing wages, etc. and then we pay someone 12mil to stay home.

imo, the only reason we're not playing him this whole time while "negotiating" with him, is that Moratti and the others know his value, and know that he will be decisive in most of the games for us and they cant afford to "negotiate" with Wes in a good form playing football, because he will be like "im winning games, what is Deki doing? what is Palacio doing? Jonathan? Chivu? etc etc".

Its either this or he fucked someones wife John Terry style... :D

08 Jan 13, 15:08
nah man. he's not played that well for us recently, so i dont think thats the big issue, tbh. plus, as demonstrated in my article, if sneijder WAS the difference between CL and non-CL, he pays for himself. Sadly, for whatever reason, they dont think he is.

i agree with you and however, sponsors would help them to pay wages, also considering Aysal cares too much about wages balance in the squad. Therefore, They only could solve this problem by support of a sponsor.

Yeah. If it isn't solved in this window, we HAVE to use him. It's about money at that point since Sneijder would help us achieve CL. Though dunno how motivated and concentrated Sneijder would be anymore after this debacle.

Hopefully this is SOMEHOW solved in this window.

High salary = lower transfer value. I dont expect more than 15m euros for sneijder. If we could break even with the price we got him at Real while hes 28 years old, we should be happy. turns 29 in june.

That's my initial hope. When people were claiming we can get like 20+, i was saying 15 is ok price. I was hoping we can somehow get 16-18, but i had my doubts. (that was in the summer).

Sneijders value is not more than 20 for 2,5 years now. How can you claim that with a month play we could have gotten 25+ mils? :dielaugh:

That's a myth. see Ibra.

There's simply no club willing to invest in him as he constantly injury prone and hasn't earned his salary in years. Out of all the clubs that can afford him, he wouldn't necessarily even make any of them better, hence why the most interest we can get from him right now is from Turkey of all places.

its not a myth... thats only for players who are in high demand. didnt Ibra go to psg for like 20m? his transfermarkt value is almost 40. same with van persie. if a player demands a higher salary, the selling club will often end up getting less

MANTA

Sneijder is a little more than halfway through his contract which makes his value on the books after amortization around 6m. That means any offer over that will allow the club to produce a profit from the sale in club's financials.

I think that if by the end of the month Sneijder can agree personal terms with a club willing to offer Inter 8m, then the club will take it.

If the offer from Galatasaray and Anzhi are real, then I feel very sorry for Sneijder. At the end of the month he will be faced with an ultimatum, either accept one of the offers, take a pay cut, or continue being frozen out. I really hope a club he is more interested submits an offer too. This reminds me of the way JC was treated. It is not exactly the same, but used the same three fundamental negotiating points, an offer of pay cut, then sale or bench. For JC the bench was a definite no, since he wanted to try for the WC, but I wonder if Wes feels that strongly about a 6 month freeze.

I'd sell Sneijder for 6m if it means we get his wages off the books.

In terms of FFP, selling him at 6m represents no asset write down, so it has no negative impact on our books. The savings from his wages, however, amount to a huge sum - if I remember correctly he is here until 2015. That's 2.5 seasons, or 30 million euros already. Thats 36 million euros (to use Berlusconi logic) saved by selling Sneijder.

If the offer of 10m transfer + 6m in wages from Galatasaray is true, then this is huge for the club as they now have a baseline for any other competing offer. At the end of the month Sneijder will be faced with an ultimatum, either accept one of the offers, take a pay cut, or continue being frozen out.

I think people always overrated sneijder. Even back in his prime I look at the stat against our 3-1 win against Barcelona, he had 10 passes the whole game.... 10 passes.... hes a counterattacking midfielder good for penetrating through wide spaces, so I always thought hed end up in EPL. but this galatasaray deal looks highly likely.

hes not in a crucial position we need, and doesnt fit our style half the time, but I still think we shouldve kept him till the end of the season. CL seems completely out of reach now.



been paying as much attention to this stream of Lazio-Catania. Its been half an hour I dont think Lodi has even touched the ball yet.

Wow, that was quick, we went from a full stale mate to a deal close to completion in less than 24 hours.

NOT! It won't be that quick because he is waiting for a better club(from EPL) to step up and make an offer and it could take a couple of days to resolve all this up

This whole saga is gay.

We all agree that our management dealt catastrophic with the whole situation, and it is the first to take the blame, than we can "blame" Sneijder. If he was allowed to play and in meantime they were negotiating and he was refusing, than i could blame him too, but in this case, all the blame is Inter's.

What happened there? I don't remember details other than vague interest from United.

Money talk lol. Some believe it was Inter that didn't want to sell (United offered 30, we wanted 40 mils), and some, the more probable one, that Sneijder wanted Rooneys wage, and Fergie didn't want to give.

In fac, i think it was both. If Sneijder accepted the offered wage (6 mils), the deal would have been concluded for 30-35 mils.

This becomes a tricky time conundrum. If the Wes deal waits too long then we might not be able to close with Paulinho in time, if Wes leaves soon he might not give enough time for EPL clubs.

He asked like 240k a week from United - more than anyone else in the Premiership at the time. The deal was very very close to finishing, it was just his wages that held it up... and now its all fallen through, and he's missed out on a very big chance.

240k?? Wow.

I cannot wrap my head around that. I always imagined he would be the kind of person to take a wage cut and play in the EPL rather than insist on 6m/year and go to Galatasaray. Although I believe Yolanthe would rather be in Istanbul than Manchester.

Given Sneijder's history of constant injuries, can you blame the club for doing this? Sneidjer is not injured and has pretty much no interest, why would anyone want to buy him while he's injured? I feel the club has handled it well, what we are seeing now is that no one wants Sneijder.

And that could have always been the case.. This could be just wishful thinking but maybe, the club did this so that fans of other clubs could do what we do here all the time and be like "Sneijder is no longer wanted at Inter, let's get him cheap".. I'm pretty sure clubs were made well aware of this situation long before we were.

His ambition was pretty much gone after the treble. But I don't still believe that he wants to go Turkey. He wants to be in the spot light that's why it will be the EPL.

I would have assumed that Fergie would want him now when the price is lower. Maybe he didn't like Wesley's attitude the last time they were negotiating.

He doesn't want to stay here obviously but doesn't want to go Gala(who are offering the 4,5M like we are. reported by GDS) either so he is waiting for a big club from the EPL primarily.

BUT if no one wants him from the EPL

This could turn out very ugly...I mean being stuck with a player who doesn't wanna be here thus not signing the contract and therefore frozen out of the team

AND not getting a player who could actually contribut

Similar to JC, where we were worried we would get stuck with an expensive player sitting on the bench. JC chose playing at a lower club rather than sitting on the bench, the big question is what Wes would choose.

I think he has at least partially committed to leave, his last quote was "it would be best for both parties if I were to leave" but he also said that if he doesn't find a team he has a contract with Inter.

So far today he has 4 possible choices.

1) Accept an offer like Galatasaray.
2) Lower his wages to get offers from the EPL
3) Lower his wages and stay with Inter
4) Stay and remain frozen out of squad

I wonder how he would prioritize those options in terms of preference. His statements make it seem that he would rather stay frozen than lower his wages to stay, but I don't know if that statement is just posturing for the sake of negotiations, or his honest preference.

Currently he is waiting for a fifth option to appear

5) A good EPL club agrees to pay his wage and transfer fee.

Who can possibly afford to do that? ManU have Kagawa, Chelsea have Mata-Hazard-Oscar, Arsenal and Tottenham will never make such an expensive deal. That leaves Man City - Liverpool and QPR, he rejects a club like QPR and I don't think Liverpool and Man City would pay his wages.

Yawn, hardly. That's not even remotely what I argued.

Sneijder's footballing abilities have disappeared along with his motivation. Coupled with the same injury problems that have plagued him his entire career - aside from that one treble season - we're seeing the "true" Sneijder, an undeniably good footballer, who will always have a degree of unfulfilled potential.

However, when was the last time he scored a free kick for us? He scored at least 3 that I can think of in the treble off hand, and yet none since? Clearly he's not playing at quite the same level as he did in the treble. And position arguments are not relevent in this case...

So please, elaborate...

And, yes, clearly he's still capable of doing very good things occassionally, but the point is he is nowhere near the level he was during the treble. Most of our players arent. Maicon certainly wasnt, Milito isnt, Lucio was hilariously bad after...

It was 2010, he announced it just a few days after the CL final. Same principle applies either way though. So many idiotic contracts handed out after the treble. Of course, if Inter had held firm and driven guys like Deki, Milito, Sneijder, Maicon out of the team then FIF would have imploded. I think, almost universally, folks on here wanted to keep pretty much everyone around and add a couple younger players, specifically a new CM and LW. And I think most of us figured that with the treble money and the Balo/Quaresma/Burdisso/Mourinho/etc money, that was going to happen.

Fact is we don't know what has been said behind the scenes. What kind of initiation we did regarding this matter and how Sneijder reacted to it. We don't know this shit at all.

Another fact is we clearly had to do this. To ask Sneijder to lower his salary which takes simply too much from our salary budget. Useless to talk about how stupid this, this and that contract is since the situation at hand is what it is. We have to cut our current salary bill. Sneijder is the easy "victim" in that, because he isn't exactly that consistent performer BECAUSE of his injuries.

well, no, i would say there are about 5 strikers in the world ahead of ibra at the moment, maybe a couple more.

no, snejider isnt the best midfielder at inter. he might be the best historically, or technically, but that isnt the important thing. the important thing is what they do. and i have to say - despite being a big critic of his - guarin is the best we have right now. he might not get rated as such, but the way he links up defense and midfield, his drive ,his ability to score goals, is the best thing about our midfield at the moment. he might not be the most sexy in terms of a brandname player, he might not set up as many goals, he might not score as many goals, he might not have half the ability with the ball that sneijder does, but he has the mentality and the drive to keep fighting, where sneijder turns into a sarcastic pussy and acts like a petulant child.

what i would like to see, to be honest, is guarin and sneijder playing together. i thik that would be a very formidible midfield, and that guarin could help bring back out the best in sneijder agai, but for our current situation, guarin makes a far far more important contribution than sneijder ever could. that would of course be subject to change if we ever get back that motta-style player sneijder needs to succeed, but its not looking likely.

and, yes, in terms of midfielders ahead of sneijder, i would say...
xavi
iniesta
silva
vidal

And you know that by judging the many (ahum) performances from Sneijder this season? How many times did you see him? 3? 4? I agree he never reached his old level after 2010, but that's because he played in a club that was in a meltdown, with the shittiest fucking invisible midfield you can think of, and shit strikers like Pazzo or Milito 2011 in front of him. He just couldn't deliver in that team. You knew that was part of the problem by watching him in his NT, where suddenly his performances nearly always were way, way better than those at his club. Sneijder needs to be surrounded by class players, not Gargano's, Zarate's and Pazzini's.

In his NT he also doesn't reach his level today because he barely trains there, leading up to a friendly there are only a few days of training. Not enough to glue the team, especially not today, now that it has been renovated and resurrected with 70% newbie youngsters. in EC 2012 our NT was in a meltdown even more than Inter after 2010 and he still was the least shitty player who still made some (world?)class passes, and even here in Inter he didn't get enough consecutive matches to reach his old level (not that that was possible in this team) because he got injured every time.

You simply cannot say if he is worse than in 2010 or not, because you have not seen him get the chance to even reach that level. Put him in a good team (imo he would be a beast in Manure or RM, just to mention some teams where his qualities would shine), let him blend in and play there for a while and if he doesn't get injured again I am 90% sure you will see a Sneijder who is equally as good as in 2010. I'm judging this by how he suddenly improves when he plays for NT a few days, as I'm sure that even more time in a good team like that will only make him get up higher.. He just needs to get the chance.

He needs to get out of here fast and get to a club where his abilities can be exploited. That's best for us and for his career. The man is in his peak, and skills like his do not just vaporize in the air. This whole discussion is stupid as no one here can say if he is still the same or worse, as there simply does not exist any evidence yet. My personal opinion is that he is still the best midfielder in at least Serie A, somewhere deep inside.

Because Sneijder is still a good player that can make the difference in almost any team.

We made him look like a greedy primadonna and we don't let him play to show his value - I don't think his wage is the only reason. And after all that trouble I wouldn't be surprised when Sneijder thinks: "Fuck this club that made me look like Greedy Oliver! No good offers - so I will sit my contract out."

What are you talking about? Why on earth would a club not sign a player because he appears greedy? All players are greedy. The problem of greed arises only when the player asks for more than a club is willing to spend. An image caused by their current club will not prevent any club from picking up the phone, calling the players agent and figuring out how much he really wants.

09 Jan 13, 19:14
It is a case of willful blindness, noone can possibly aknowledge the fact that Sneijder is the most precious attacking weapon we still have. Ignoring the contract saga and the question mark about his willingness to offer i bet that few would have the courage to say that even an indifferent Sneijder wouldn't be vital to the poor midfield we currently 'let it be' like i use to say..

'Let it be' cause we still rely on individualism, there is no equal weight in terms of quality with past seasons and it depresses me there has been developed an eduranced crash test system. We play the cards using numbers at midfield relying on Cuchu's good will, Guarin skills or at times when used at Nagatomos movement on the flanks. Still Pereira can't contribute as much in the attacking play, Ricky remains invisible cause of his few playing time and injuries and Coutinho doesn't get his chance.

Then i'm wondering what the bottom of the vase says.. With that stance we simply annihilate all our chances to get a CL spot. Let's leave the self righteousness and concluse to that we only keep at it if we play Wes or at very least we'll bring some undeniable quality to our midfield.

Otherwise there ain't no mind control at our play so Sneijder or something really optimal ffs.

The whole story was a terrible mistake from management. It makes Sneijder look like a complete, greedy bitch and us like complete idiots. I bet that there would be already some serious interests in him when we handled that situation better and that Sneijder would possible be more willing to accept a pay cut when the right offer comes in. And if not - there would haven been a "going back to status quo" possilbe.

No there wouldn't be.. A club publicly transfer-listing a player as we did, stirs up interest in a player.. well it's supposed to. There simply was never interest in Wesley to begin with and even though the club is practically giving him away there is hardly any now.. Our handling of the situation does not change that.. Clubs are simply not interested in him and the way he's played after winning the treble has a lot to do with it.

If Sneijder isn't 6 milion player than Milito can't be 5 milion player, Chivu&Stan can't have 3.5 milions per year ... When we decided to start with this pay cuts all we needed to do is start with diferent players (on this way we fucked up his reputation and value). That was worst choise, only high value player we have.

Exactly, why can't some people see that and realize that everyone with a high salary is going to be approached sooner or later there are no exceptions. And its stupid that Stankovic and Chivu are continually mentioned here.. They are not immune to the ax. Sneijder is not being asked to contract so they could stay. Even if they had their contracts rescinded tomorrow, Sneijder's salary would still need to be reduced, as will Cambiasso and Milito's in due time..

According to the papers, Sneijder was told of the salary reduction privately in the summer but chose to ignore it, forcing the club to go private.

Inter President Massimo Moratti has confirmed “we are happy with Galatasaray’s offer for Sneijder, so now it all depends on Wesley.”

The Turkish club began formal negotiations yesterday and it is reported they proposed a €10m transfer fee with €6m per season wages.

“Galatasaray’s offer for Sneijder has arrived and we are happy with it, so now it all depends on Wesley,” declared Moratti as he left a Board of Directors meeting.

“I haven’t yet spoken to him. If he were to remain under our conditions, then he would be a great help.”

Inter have told Sneijder he won’t play for them again until he lowers his €6m per season wages.

Moratti also commented on their interest in Catania creative midfielder Francesco Lodi.

“Lodi will not arrive in January, because President Pulvirenti declared he is not for sale and we do not want to cause problems.”

I voted for his sale, tho i am aware that by far he is the best player in our team. We cant and dont use him the way we should, and by we i mean Inter/Strama. After Mous departure, he has played in almost every position except the one that Mou played him. Rafa played him as a striker for fucks sake, how in hell can someone expect good performances from Wes under Rafa and Ranieri who also tried something that a 12 year old wont try at manager games because sees that it is stupid.

So having said that; my whole rant in this thread has been for our management and their moronic ways to deal with our players. If at first there was JC, now Sneijder, what guarantees us that next wont be Cambi or Rano (just throwing random names)?

Im sure that after he leaves he will talk it all out, and then we will see the true face of Inter and our moronic management, and Branca fanboys here will be "wes is mad at us thats why he is talking bs" when in fact that will be the truth.

You can be sure these guys won't be immune to our wage cut policy. That is going to happen to them too. I'm pretty certain Cambiasso will agree and Milito might take a golden handshake and leave for Argentina. Stankovic is probably a tough nut (if those Pajo's friend's stories are true) and remains to be seen what will happen with him. But the wage will either go down or his contract will be teared (with some kind of bonus too unfortunately).

Although I believe he was sucks in that match and all of that due to Pescara's poor performance, I agree he would be a very good addition to our current squad, add to those three Guarin being in his beast form. I've said that many times, just fuck the 3 men defense and play that 4-3-2-1 christmas tree formation, I believe it worked well last season in the few games Strama used that formation, with Sneidjer-Cassano instead of Sneijder-Alvarez, and Guarin-Cuchu-Gargano/Mudingayi behind them.

Palacio 30, Sneijder almost 29 when the deals are happening. :D THe age is not a factor AT ALL here. THe rest from my post is. As I said, Palacio came after perfect season, he alone saved Genoa from relegation, Sneijder has 2.5 below average seasons AND is injury prone.

I'd love him to stay, i really do, because his value to Inter is much greater than 10 mils + we wont replace him properly + ... + i love him :D (no homo).
But please, be realistic when it comes to his market value, which is not more than 12-13. There's a reason no club wants him and doesn't offer us even 13, and doesn't offer him more than 4 mils wage.

Even if he wasn't frozen, maybe it wouldn't have been 10, but 12-13 tops. In the summer maybe 15-17, but i doubt. No team wants to pay huge money for proven injury prone player, who hasn't been at his top for 2.5 years. We don't talk for few months, even 1 season, but two and a half. And there's his wage...

That's why i hope he accepts new deal. THe best for everyone, by now even he realizes he won't go in big team, and he won't get the 6 mils he wants.

The only difference I see, is that of a player who had his playing time & another who was frozen out of the team, over bullshit reasons. One week injury, one week diarrhea, another week an alleged tactical decision. Sneijder didn't play, you can't speculate if he would've been good or not based on his previous form, because that can be misleading: Milito 2010 = boss, Milito 2011 = utter crap, Guarin at the beginning = crap, Guarin now = absolute boss.

THE ONLY relevant issue here is nothing but his salary. Something that it was offered to him by the management voluntarily. Everything else is just an excuse to mislead you from the actual point. According to your reasoning, how would you justify Eto'o's cheap sale? Was he injury prone or underperforming too?

It is known across the league, that a player of Sneijder's characteristics is currently the team's top priority. The issue is that Moratti doesn't want to keep his word & respect the agreement he offered the first place.

I'm fully behind Sneijder on this one, because a man who doesn't respect his word in business should be taught a juicy lesson.

CafeCordoba
10 Jan 13, 08:00
That "salary offered" is really a double-sided sword. You can't be so naive to think that it was Inter management's idea to give Sneijder that contract. I mean, come on! It was OBVIOUSLY Sneijder who requested a pay increase. And obviously our management had no option.

Think about the situation after treble season that our management would have refused to give Sneijder that new contract. Sneijder would have gone apeshit and requested a transfer.

This place would have exploded like a motherfucker.

Not only would some of it would have leaked into the media if this were true, I also just think we were throwing those contracts to any key plqyer in desperate attempts to keep them.

They might not have asked for it, but they certainly would have EXPECTED it. If you've just been a key player in winning the treble, you bloody well expect a wage rise. And to be honest, you're justified in that expectation.

Yes, thats the spirit, next should be Zanetti, right? Talk about "core of the team" when it comes to him, he is our alfa and omega.

There are contracts and there are bonuses and/or extras. They are not there just to figure, they are there for a reason. We won the triplete, instead of raising their salaries, we should have said "guys, you all got bonuses for when and if we win CHL, so lets not pretend like we are the red cross here" but no, we didnt say that, Moratti was so happy that he raised all their salaries. What player will say no to more money, name just one?

If someone should pay the price and believe me it is, that is Moratti First for letting someone like Branca work for Inter, second for hiring the most stupid coach names ever, and third for doing the "hiring the most stupid names ever" but this time for players.

We havent signed 1 top player after Wes, and yet we've managed to spend more thatn ~150 millions on crappy ones. How much easier would have been to retain that first place in Serie A, with just 2 buys of top players after the triplete season, instead of selling 1 good and buying 10 shit players. Every year... Now we cant stop Juve, not with their momentum, and what do we do? "sneijder has a flue", "sneijder has fever", "sneijder is not good enough for Inter".

I don't mind the club trying to save money, but they should man up and get the deal done during the pre-season. Politics within the club is never good, especially when the same players have seen how forgiving Moratti was to Recoba's wage, or Adriano. The shit's gonna impact the whole locker room, and our players will be wondering when they'll be forced to leave the club after we win another cup and they get an increase.

Either way, Inter still put their pen on paper and sealed the deal themselves.

My evidence is logic. There is no way our management would have pumped Sneijder's annual salary by 2m€ and add extra year to his contract just because he won a treble. He had 4 years left of his 4m€/y contract, ~8m€ cost to us yearly, this totals to 32m€ contract. New contract at that point (5 years left) equals to 60m€. That is 28m€ difference.

So I don't buy that claim that our management just for the cheer and joy decided to put extra 28m€ to Sneijder's contract (cost to the club). Agents are always there trying to pump the contracts and it would be ridiculous to even think that Sneijder's agent wasn't there asking for a pay raise after the treble season.

Liverpool is a mid-table english team, no CL, the only upside is they play in the prem. The turkish league is pretty much on par with the french league. that level of play is good enough for players like ibra, thiago silva, lavezzi, pastore, but not for sneijderman who's injured 24/7.

dont get me wrong hes an amazing player but hes almost 29, I dont think he could handle EPL, without constant injuries. his style fits their league, just not his fitness. he cant even stay fit in serie a.

The turkish league is pretty much on par with the french league. Their money is good enough for players like ibra, thiago silva, lavezzi, pastore, but not for sneijderman who's injured 24/7.

Fixed.

Regardless of how you believe the management handled the situation, we can all pretty much agree that Sneijder is turning himself into a grade A mercenary.

4mil + 2mil in potential bonuses with Inter or;
6mil with Galatasaray.

He obviously doesn't believe in his abilities enough if he turns down our incentive based offer. I'd bet my right nut (lost my left in another bet with choppinonions) that Sneijder was approached with the new contract way before this went public.

That isn't much of a bet, reports that Galatasaray have known about the Sneijder impasse months before it went public, which means the wage cut discussions had started at least since the beginning of the season and more likely since the summer.

why are people acting like sneijder is being sent to qatar? galatasaray is in the knockout rounds of the CL, and is a better team than lets say liverpool. Liverpool is a mid-table english team, no CL, the only upside is they play in the prem. The turkish league is pretty much on par with the french league. that level of play is good enough for players like ibra, thiago silva, lavezzi, pastore, but not for sneijderman who's injured 24/7.

dafuq you talking about? turkey's league is nowhere near france's which is nearing serie a in terms of quality..

I am still waiting for the replacement for Motta. So I would prefer not to sell Sneijder for ridiculous money because all we buy nowadays are Mudingays and Rocchis.

Guarin?

Math has never been my strong side.. so I really don't get how much sneijder will get,reports are saying this whole operation will cost Galatasaray 30m(10m to us and 20 for sneijder) for how much is this 20 m for sneijder, + they are saying that sneijder will get some money when he will sign the contract

I really don't get this shit.

At this point, I don't care who is to blame. I don't really want to see him leave, not because he's my favourite player, but because even if we got 40m for him we'd waste it. I have zero faith that his 2009/2010 form will be replaced in this club, by him or by a new player, within the next few seasons.

It's all doom and gloom when we are buying Rocchi three years after winning the Champions League. Are we QPR now?

Since no one including himself would replicate such form, we should just sell him to reduce the wage we're paying him.

In fact, we should just let him go for nothing, since Stramaccioni is unwilling to use him despite his availability.

MetalKeirSolid
11 Jan 13, 05:52
I feel like we could make better savings elsewhere, but as I said even if we save money what's it for? They're going to buy bad players who won't bring in fans like Sneijder, or shirt sales or anything.

Also, and right now I agree with Strama's choice not to play him, but if a manager ever came between a star player in form and their place on the squad I would get rid of the manager. Bring back Mourinho :/

^ exactly, and everbody on fif saw this coming and i mean every body and there is nothing we could have done. we are wasting money for nothing, and we have almost no money. :D

same story as in what is going to happen with schelotto, we are going to waste 7 or 8 million on his below average ass while there are a million better options out there. grandpa camps, he is almost as old as zanetti but seems like we will take him and his wages in no problem. our medical staff is used to working with older people anyway.

Why wasn't he banned from the squad before the start of the season, then? Could have sorted it all out earlier tbh.

I really don't get this shit.

8 m euros+bonuses=10 m euros to us. (in 3 years payment)(2,5+2.5+3)
6 m euro signing on fee to Sneijder(They are offering this, because of wages balance in the squad)
3.5 m euros+25.000 euros per match
500k euros if Gala wins Turkish League.
500k euros if they play semi final in CL.

This is because of match-fixing last year fenerbahçe convicted by the European heads of a club was sentenced to six years in prison and soon will end the period.

gala wants to pay him 4 mill + 2 depending on form, which is pretty much our deal.
