Bayern not interested in Sneijder, insists Heynckes

Jupp Heynckes has laughed off rumours that Bayern Munich are interested in signing Netherlands international Wesley Sneijder from Inter.

The attacking midfielder is unhappy at the Giuseppe Meazza side following an ongoing contract dispute, but Bayern have no intention to make a move for Sneijder according to the Roten head coach.

“There’s absolutely no truth in these reports. If we would sign every player who’s being linked with a move to Bayern, we would end up with more players than Wolfsburg!” joked Heynckes to TZ.

Sneijder has a contract with Inter until the summer of 2015, but a transfer seems inevitable following his refusal to accept a pay-cut.

The former Real Madrid star was allegedly close to joining Manchester United two seasons ago, and is now being linked with clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain, Anzhi Makhachkala and Fenerbahce, although the latter have revealed that a transfer is not an option for now either.

“We can say that, as of now, our interest in Sneijder is zero. If there is any, it is without my knowledge and I have no comment,” head coach Aykut Kocaman told Radyspor.

“As of now, we have not made any attempts to transfer anyone. However, on the other hand, we are going through a critical and delicate period.”
