Inter´s Sneijder open to MLS move

SoccerNews in English Premier League, MLS 9 Feb 2012


Inter playmaker Wesley Sneijder has revealed that he is pondering a move to the MLS at some point in his career.

The Netherlands international is believed to be considering the switch to follow in the footsteps of the likes of David Beckham and Robbie Keane, and further his career in the United States.

But he assured that such a move will not happen anytime soon.

“A spell in the USA? That is something I think about, but only in the future,” Sneijder told Dutch TV channel Nos.

“I do not think where I will play next season. I have been in the USA with Yolanthe (his wife) because of her work.”

“We will surely discuss this in the future, but not now.”

Sneijder remains linked with a San Siro exit after failing to impress in the first half of this season, with Anzhi Makhachkala understood to be lining up a 25-million-euro bid.

Manchester United were understood to be close to signing him during both the summer and winter transfer windows, but a move to Old Trafford failed to materialise on both occasions.

“There have never been any concrete contacts with Manchester United,” Sneijder said. “I see everything, I am not blind, but there is nothing concrete right now.”

“I am happy at Inter, but we will see. I currently have no contacts with other clubs and I am living day by day.”

“If on the last day of the transfer window an offer had arrived, maybe I would have left.”

“The truth is that I feel at home at Inter, but I do not know where I will play next season.”
