Wesley Sneijder has pulled a ‘Steve McManaman’ after stubbornly refusing to leave Real Madrid and persistently declaring his desire to fight for his place in the team.

According to AS, Los Blancos’ bosses are now ready to consider the option of keeping the 25-year-old at the Santiago Bernabeu after struggling to find a buyer willing to meet the player’s demands as well as dish out €27 million in transfer fees.

Madrid had considered including Sneijder in the Kaka deal to lower the mammoth €67 million transaction, but the Dutchman insisted that he had “no intentions to leave Real Madrid”.

The ‘White House’ then wanted to offer his services plus €25m to sign Maicon from Inter, a deal that the Nerazzurri supposedly would have accepted, but again Sneijder refused to leave the Spanish capital.

And it was no different when Madrid tried to lure Franck Ribery away from Bayern Munich. The German outfit were interested in the Oranje midfielder, but he declared that he did not want to play in the Bundesliga.

Sneijder joined Los Blancos from Ajax in 2007. He has made 51 league appearances for the Spanish behemoths, tallying 13 goals.
