Wesley Sneijer: “EPL? Yes. QPR? – Never”

share on:

Wesley Sneijder would consider moving to a top Premier League club but is “absolutely not interested” in joining QPR, says his agent Soren Lerby.

Sneijder has not played for Inter Milan since September because of a contract wrangle and has been linked with QPR.

Lerby told BBC Sport: “He is absolutely not interested in QPR and we haven’t heard directly from anyone there.

“England probably has the top league in Europe, so it could appeal, but Wes would want to play for a top team.”

Inter Milan have told Sneijder, 28, that they will not play him unless he agrees to a big salary cut. The Dutch midfielder has refused, meaning he has not played since 25 September, despite having been fit for the past two months.

Lerby, who represented Ajax, Bayern Munich, Monaco and Denmark during an illustrious playing career, described the links with QPR as “just rumours from an agent”.

He added: “Wesley is one of the best midfielders in Europe. He is fully recovered from injury and just loves to play football, so we need to find a solution to his situation with Inter.

“It’s a very, very strange situation for all of us. We should know a lot more in the next week to 10 days.”

QPR boss Harry Redknapp admitted there was little prospect of signing Sneijder, although he claimed to have been offered the player by an agent.

“I took [the offer] with a pinch of salt,” he said. “What chance have we got of getting Wesley Sneijder? He wouldn’t be coming to QPR, would he?”
