Redknapp laughs off Sneijder link

QPR manager Harry Redknapp claims he has been offered the chance to sign out-of-favour Inter Milan man Wesley Sneijder, but insists a deal that would bring the midfielder to Loftus Road is highly unlikely.

Redknapp has told The Sun that he has been handed a unlikely opportunity to snap up the 2010 Champions League winners as he looks to plot a route out of Inter in the January transfer window. But the former Tottenham boss dismissed the notion out of hand.

"I was asked by one agent if I wanted to sign Sneijder," said Redknapp. "Of course I do. However, he's on about £200,000-a-week and now he wants to join QPR? I won’t name the agent, but let’s just say I think a deal is unlikely."

If a relegation scrap with QPR is the most improbable end to Sneijder's misery at Inter, a move to the Premier League deos seem the most likely outcome, with Manchester United and Tottenham both reportedly considering moves for the 28-year-old playmaker.

Sneijder's hefty wage demands may be a stumbling block in any potential deal, with the Dutchman believed to have missed out on a chance to join United last summer as his personal demands scuppered the proposed transfer.
