"Even if he earns £200000 or so per week he still would be cheaper than what we lost on Aqua where we paid £20 million and the kid played 28 games in 3 years scored 2 goals and we got £4 million at the most when we sold him. "

"if he seriously wants the move to PL and we are showing interest why does he not slash his wages? he is already a multi-millionaire. Walcott now got what he wanted, £100,00 per week - clubs are held to ransom!"

"If he is not about money he would still be playing at Milan and took the pay cut however how many players have you heard take a pay cut in the last 20 years, unless there getting old or really bad. Would love to see him come, I think would round us off. "

18th Jan 2013 15:49
"I've read that he doesn't mind a pay cut, if it's the right move... So this issue over wages is nonsense. Gives me some hope a deal can be done; but does he want to come to lfc enough? "

"We severely lack ambition if we don't make a serious effort to sign this guy. It's not often a world-class player becomes available on the cheap and is willing to take a pay cut. If Rodgers or anyone else at LFC thinks midfielders like Shelvey, Allen & Henderson are going to get us back to the top they're sadly misguided. "

"sincerely £240k a week looks like a madness, but think that BR and FSG will ponder the risk and make opportune evaluations on possible alternative to him before take a conclusion. For me for a pay-cut the player is worth a gamble, let's wait and see..."

"The wage demands are too high ,no sense in reducing by letting cole ,aqua's and others go to reduce wage bill then get one player who takes up the whole saving made.Sneijder should not demand high wages he should be doing it for the love of the game and premier league football."

"I can only remember one other time since the owners took over we signed someone like this and that was suarez, it doesnt bare to much consideration, reina (worldclass) agger skrtel (good spine, johnson and enrique (solid) lucas, gerrard sneijder, sterling, sturridge, suarez, I can see us winning any match with that team "

"the press are mocking Liverpool,s recent excursions in the transfer market the Forren thing was a joke. An insult to ask an international for a trial. Look on Youtube! Have Liverpool checked their offices for bugs...the listening type. We seem to get outsmarted regularly! will it happen with Sneijder"
Neverman
18th Jan 2013 19:21
"Sturridge, Suarez, Sterling, Sneijder, Gerrard, Lucas, Enrique, Agger, Skrtel, Johnson, Reina is a Champions League lineup. In three years Henderson and Allen will be ready for CL. It's a no-brainer to me IF we want to get 4th THIS year."
KINGOFCLUBS
18th Jan 2013 19:49
"This would be a perfect signing but only if the deal suits us. He is no doubt an exceptional player but there are a number of other factors to consider; his fitness, his character, his atude, would he accept a pay cut? does he only want CL, or is he willing to accept our current position and fight with us to get us back to the top?..."
KINGOFCLUBS
18th Jan 2013 19:49
"There is no doubt that he would fit in with the style of play and it could just help us get into the top 4, but what if we don't? This is why we need to be very careful, BR will need to be totally convinced he is getting the right man at the right price for the club. We do not take on flash, mercenaries with ego's to match, who will only graft if it suits them!..."
KINGOFCLUBS
18th Jan 2013 19:49
"If all these factors are positive we definitely need to raise a little extra cash to get him and move on a couple who have had enough chances to prove themselves! Forget Ince, a great talent but it's gone on far too long now, move on Downing and maybe another and get Sneijder!"

"I know that John Henry said that LFC $ will be seperate from Red Sox $, however, 2 years ago, the Red Sox signed Carl Crawford for $142 million over 7 years with a $6 million signing bonus..thats $20 million per year...they can afford Sneijders salary...sign him already...YNWA"

18th Jan 2013 19:58
"If this is all press BS, which it well could be, then I hope that BR is on the hunt for someone in the same bracket, as that is all we need this season to push us on that bit more and hopefully get that top 4 spot."

"if he wants that money then all i can say is Welcome to Manchester City.. they are the only club stupid enough to pay that sort of money for a player, lets hope he sees sense and joins us and helps get us back into the Champions League.."

"If it's 'too fantastic to believe', then either we are not as big a club as we thought we were (which is doubtful, because we are VERY big) or we are in the wrong hands (which I believe is the case and NOT inevitable). The world's most coveted players should be the kind of players coming through the doors at Anfield."

"What the blind posters on here fail to realise is that it's not about the size of his weekly salary, it's what it would do to the rest of the team; he'd be higher paid that Luis, Gerrard, etc & it would destroy our pay structure & eventually our club when all our stars demand that salary!"

"Some of you are forgetting that even footballers pay tax and when you are a high earner it's 50% tax. So yes, it would be 240,000 per week to make it 6,000,000 per year, at 120,000 per week."

"One Sneijder headline is enough 4 makes me a little suious have LFC got something up there sleeve? If we can't get his wages down to something reasonable then forget it but we def need the quality experience. Rumours that we've bid for another Inter Milan player Coutinho good player but again he's 20 we need to mix youth and experience a lot better and add strength in depth."

"Why would he even consider going to the Turkish league? EPL is far better and maybe he is just waiting for us to jump in to rescue him from the turks. Just put a reasonable deal together and see if he will accept. Don't get ransomed over this, I say."

"The Italian did it to themselves to have such a ludicrous contract. Now they can't wait to get rid of him. Offer him a performance based deal. Both sides will benifit this. We move up to 4th or better and he will be ready for the world cup next year."

"Rodgers has his poker face about this. Maybe there is something cooking as we speak. We certainly don't want to have a bidding war then we will end up overpaid for his service. I wonder what SG and LS are thinking about right now? Too bad Kuyt is not around to tell Sneijder a real career starts at Anfield not anywhere else."
