According to Turkish sports website Sporx, Galatasaray star Wesley Sneijder might be on the move to the MLS and the Montreal Impact.

The 33-year-old midfielder is looking to leave Galatasaray as he has one more year on his contract with the team and if he can't find a good deal with a European club he will then look to the MLS for a deal. The Montreal Impact seem to rank among the options in the MLS as he played with both Didier Drogba and Dzemaili back in Galatasaray so there is a great connection there.

Wesley Sneijder won't be a cheap transfer to the MLS, Sneijder is currently making $4.5 million per season with Galatasaray and has a transfer fee of around $7.5 million dollars. In the past Impact owner, Joey Saputo usually gets most of his DP players on a free transfer so seeing Joey Saputo spending $7.5 Million on a single player is unlikely.

If Wesley Sneijder were to come over to Canada and play with the Montreal Impact it would be a huge addition to the club. It would go down as one of the biggest names to join the Impact after Nesta and Drogba. A midfield trio of Dzemaili, Piatti & Sneijder would be absolutely deadly and would cause many of the Impact opponents problems.
