Arsenal fail to lure, Inter Milan relieved to hold on – Serie A Transfer Update
Inter Milan star playmaker Wesley Sneijder is feared to be losing grip on a possible transfer to Arsenal FC after the player’s wage demands turned out to be too steep for the English outfit. The Dutch international has been linked to a move out of
for the upcoming 2011/12 season and previously Manchester United were reported as the possible new destination.
The Gunners boss, Arsene Wenger, has been keen on a quality addition to the squad after the exit of and Cesc Fabregas. Nasri went on to join the fellow English Premier League outfit, Manchester City, while the Fabregas finally returned to Barcelona.
Sneijder is identified as a possible fix to fill up the gap created in the midfield.
Arsenal have made good progress on the transfer, compared to Manchester United. United failed to negotiate on the asking price set by the Nerazzurri, however, the Gunners offered an attractive 35 million Euros along with benefits but the player’s demand
for the wages are considered to be unacceptable by Arsene Wenger.
The English outfit have a self imposed fixed salary sealing; player’s at Emirates Stadium are not paid in excess of 100,000 Euros per week – an amount considered to be the reason behind Nasri’s exit. Sneijder is already happy at San Siro and the salary offer
would not be enough to convince the playmaker into parting ways with the Serpent.
Moreover, in the current scenario where have lost Samuel Eto’o, Sneijder’s presence at San Siro is very important for the former Serie A Champions. Inter would not be looking for a second blow as the team is ambitious to make a comeback in the Italian
top flight. Losing star players such as Sneijder would only hamper their chances of reliving their glory days.
Inter are currently short of a good attacker and are keen on Atletico Madrid striker Diego Forlan. However, the deal still requires a few more days to develop into something concrete.
