Chelsea prepare to match European star’s £14m release clause

SneijderChelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been taken aback by claims from the continent today, which suggest one of the finest players in Europe over recent years is on his way to Stamford Bridge.

Turkish outlet Fanatik state that Galatasaray’s Wesley Sneijder is in-line for a move to Chelsea in January, with the Premier League club preparing to match the Dutch international’s release clause.

31-year-old Sneijder, formerly of Inter Milan and Real Madrid, is considered by many to be one of the finest midfielders in European football over the past decade- with the player enjoying plenty of success throughout his career.

Whilst he’s yet to have his taste of Premier League football, Chelsea are preparing to match his £14m release clause in order to bring him to England in the New Year.

Sneijder shares a great relationship with Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho, with the pair winning a treble together with Inter Milan previously that included success in the Champions League.

Chelsea fans at the bar are delighted to be linked with such an exciting addition, though they have expressed their concerns that Sneijder is well past his best.

Would Sneijder be a good addition for Chelsea? Does he still have what it takes to compete at the very top? Let us know in the comments below!
