'I won't be rushed into a decision'



Inter Milan playmaker Wesley Sneijder says he will not be rushed into making a decision on his future.

Galatasaray has reached an agreement with the Italian club to buy Sneijder and Inter President Massimo Moratti said on Monday that the player should respond.

"Look, like all of the players who have to decide what to do and where to go before January 31, I have that time," Sneijder said in an interview with Tuesday's Gazzetta dello Sport. "I'm not in a rush and I won't be rushed."

Sneijder joined Inter Milan in 2009 and has helped it to a number of trophies, notably the treble of the Italian League and Cup and the Champions League in 2010.

In November, Inter technical director Marco Branca said Sneijder would not play until he made a decision about his future, with a new deal reportedly requiring him to take a pay cut.

"After all that has happened in the last few months, in a context in which I and my other teammates have made football history, I don't want to feel that they are putting pressure on me," Sneijder said. "My doubts do not have anything to do with the offers that I have received, it's only that after everything I have done I don't want to feel like this, almost forced to make an important life decision in a short space of time."

Liverpool is also reportedly among the other clubs interested in Sneijder, as well as Wolfsburg, while Manchester United has long been linked with the Netherlands captain.

"It's not a question of money," Sneijder said.
