Wesley Sneijder wants to stay put at Galatasaray
Istanbul: Dutch midfielder Wesley Sneijder insisted on Thursday he had no intention of leaving Turkish giants Galatasaray, despite reports linking him with a move to AC Milan or Manchester United.
"My name is always linked to this kind of news. But I do not pay attention to this," Sneijder, 30, told the Galatasaray TV channel ahead of the weekend clash with arch Black Sea rivals Trabzonspor.
"I feel good with the team and with the guys and I am not thinking of leaving here at any time," he said. Galatasaray's Italian manager Cesare Prandelli was quoted by Turkish media as saying he had spoken to the player and been assured that a move was not on the cards.
Talk of a possible move came amid Galatasaray's woeful Champions League form which has seen them pick up just one point in Group D and suffer heavy defeats to Arsenal and Borussia Dortmund.
