Sneijder has signed an 18-month contract with Al Gharafa who have confirmed his transfer.




He starts his new venture with a wealth of experience. He's won domestic titles in the Netherlands, Spain, Italy and Turkey, not to mention holding aloft the prestigious Champions League in 2010.

As well as the club honours, Sneijder has amassed an incredible 133 international caps which makes him the most capped player in Netherlands' rich history.

"It's a nice adventure and a fun challenge. I am really happy to go for it together with my family," he said on his move via Goal.

Sneijder will now call former Chile international Luis Jimenez and ex-Manchester City and Rangers winger Vladimir Weiss teammates.
