IT seems that a common consensus among Liverpool fans is that management is spending too much on British players that don’t have the same verve and potential as some of their international counterparts.

With most of the month left for the transfer window, fans and media pundits alike will be anxiously following the rumour mill to see whom their team can land. Long accused of overspending for underachievers, perhaps it is time for Liverpool to take a plunge.

. There are few, if any, bigger names being linked with Liverpool that are actually practical. The more pessimistic of fans may be quick to shoot this move down but take a moment to consider the possibility. Frozen out from and wanting a move, Sneijder would take little convincing. The biggest stumbling block would be negotiating his wages, something that management at Liverpool will have to bite the bullet on if they are serious about becoming contenders. Although these wages may appear steep this player should be able to justify them.

Few players available have the talent and ability of Sneijder to influence the game. An exciting attacking force that is well versed in distributing the ball but also capable of scoring big goals. He could serve as a sort of mentor for Sterling as well as bringing an immediate impact to the squad. Sneijder’s talent is undeniable and he would certainly warrant a start in ’ plans. What a perfect way to signal to the rest of the Premier League that Liverpool are to be taken seriously.

Before you start knocking the feasibility of the move, consider this: swapping plus cash for Sneijder. Sahin does not seem to feature in the manager’s plans and Inter are reportedly interested in him as disclosed by The Mirror. This swap would certainly bring the transfer fee down, giving more room to meet Sneijder’s wage demands.

Furthermore, a move to Liverpool cannot seem like a demotion. Inter Milan aren’t playing Champions League football this year and it remains unclear as to whether they will qualify next year. Why not move to a new squad where you will get a fresh start and guaranteed playing time?

Liverpool have a chance to pull of something special. They can sign a special talent right from the noses of their rivals that would bring immediate improvement to the squad. There can be no doubting that this move takes guts. Let’s just hope that management at Liverpool have them.

    Not sure how this move is ‘impossible’ as many of you think. Perhaps it’s because you don’t understand how the business of the transfer window works.

    Reports have suggested Inter want Sahin in their midfield, as for him wanting to leave I feel that he would prefer the chance at playing time rather than riding the pine at Liverpool. Liverpool are stuck footing the bill for Sahin, unless they can find someone else to take him on.

    Because of our loan we have the rights to Sahin until the end of the term, paying the player £85K per week, I believe. Inter are paying £200k per week for Sneijder, who doesn’t get on the pitch. With simple trade, Inter get the player they want for £90K , £110K less per week than they pay Sneijder. Liverpool pay £115k per week for a little over twenty weeks.

    Then comes the option to buy @ say £10m in the summer, or send him back onto the market, but with him actually playing instead of sitting around.

    It’s not impossible, financially nor legally but would Sneijder fancy the move and would management want to pull it off? That’s why the article is entitled Dream Deal.

      This is like something you would read in the s** – Total speculation and factually inaccurate

      1. Obviously Rodgers doesnt rate Sahin and definitely WONT sign him
      2. Even if Rodgers wanted to sign him . Sahin is NOT going to sign when he cant even get near the team
      3 . Inter wouldn’t want a player that cant get near our team

      …… and 4 . NO WAY in a billion years would Sneijder want to join a mid table team in crisis

      according to FIFA rules . A player can only play for 2 clubs in a 12 month period .the exception is short term loan deals , so sahin wouldn’t be able to play for inter until june
