Dutch wing star Wesley Sneijder, who impressed football viewers with his sensational performances in Euro 2008, has denied reports that he would be part of the deal to take Cristiano Ronaldo to Real Madrid. Sneijder was reported as the ideal addition to the Ronaldo bid to tempt Man Utd to sell their prized asset, given that he plays in the same position as the Portuguese.
At Real Madrid, he is not considered a key player, and the management wouldn’t bother including him in the deal to bring long-term target (and money-spinning) Cristiano Ronaldo to Madrid. However, Sneijder has made it plain and clear that he doesn’t want a transfer to the Red Devils, and that he wants to win trophies with the Spanish giants.
“When I left Ajax, my lifelong team, I only wanted to go to Madrid. It’s the best club in the world.”
“Now that I’m here the only thing I want to do is win, win lots of titles and spend as long as possible defending this shirt and badge.” – Wesley Sneijder
