Galatasaray will give Wesley Sneijder another “three or four days” to decide whether he wants to join the Turkish champions, the club’s president has said.

The Netherlands international is set to leave Internazionale after failing to agree a new contract with the 2010 Champions League winners, who wanted the playmaker to take a pay cut.

The former Ajax midfielder, who was a long-term target of Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson, has not featured for the Nerazzurri since September.

Inter have accepted Galatasaray’s £6.2m offer for the midfielder, but Sneijder is believed to be holding out for an offer from the Premier League, with Liverpool reportedly interested.

“We’ll wait another three or four days for Sneijder,” said Gala president Unal Aysal.

“If the deal collapses, we have alternatives. The figures quoted in the media are wrong. Our deal with Inter is worth €7.5million (£6.2m).

“The player knows our proposal. Inter are now calculating things with him. Our offer for his wages is below €5.5million. It is also true that our coach Fatih Terim wants Sneijder – he is the first name on the list.

“I see no reason why the transfer should not go through. Even if it does collapse, it won’t be the end of the world.”
