PLAYERS: Wesley Sneijder
Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has agreed to join Turkish club Galatasaray. Galatasaray says on its website that it reached a deal with Sneijder pending a medical, which is expected to take place Monday. The contract is for a reported three and a half years and worth $6.66 million per season. Galatasaray agreed to a transfer fee of $10 million with Inter earlier this month for the Netherlands captain. Sneijder joined Inter Milan in 2009 and has helped it to a number of trophies, notably the treble of the Italian League and Cup and the Champions League in 2010. In November, Inter technical director Marco Branca said Sneijder would not play until he made a decision about his future, with a new deal reportedly requiring him to take a pay cut.
