Wesley Sneijder Has Himself A New Club

Wesley Sneijder Has Himself A New Club

After leaving Galatasaray having bought himself out of his contract at Galatasaray for €4.5 million, Wesley Sneijder's next move has been confirmed.

Although there was big money interest from new MLS franchise Los Angeles FC and the possibility of a return to Serie A with Sampdoria, as well as his hometown club of Utrecht, Sneijder has now signed for OGC Nice in Ligue One.

The Dutchman was heavily linked with the Champions League club, who finished third in the French top flight last season, and now Nice have officially confirmed they have snapped him up and he will join the ranks pending a medical.

Sneijder spent five years in Istanbul, making 173 appearances for Gala, scoring 45 goals and lifting eight major honours with the Turkish giants.

At Nice, under the tutelage of Lucien Favre, he will be reunited with his former Inter Milan teammate Mario Balotelli.

Even if his best years - which came circa 2010 when he was in genuine contention for being the best player in the world following his displays for Jose Mourinho's treble-winning Inter side, are behind him, it would appear to be a fine bit of business for Nice.

Sneijder registered 15 assists in the Turkish top tier last season, suggesting he still has the creative touch in the final third.

And he arrives at Nice looking to conquer yet another league in his glittering career, having already won league titles in the Netherlands, Spain, Italy and Turkey. The 32-year old's winning mentality and experience will be invaluable to the Ligue One outfit.

What do you make of Sneijder's latest career move? Will he light up Ligue One?

Sound off in the comments.
