According to multiple reports, the Montreal Impact have made the most serious offer to Wesley Sneijder for him to come play for the Montreal Impact in the MLS.

Apparently, the Montreal Impact have offered him $3.5 Million for him to join the team but it seems he rather play for new MLS expansion team LAFC who is due to join the MLS in 2018.

There have also been many reports that Wesley wants to remain in Europe specifically in Italy and Tancredi Palmeri‏ from beIN Sports has told us at Mount Royal Soccer that Sneijder has been rejected by Milan and many other Italian clubs. Tancredi Palmeri‏ also added that Sampdoria is the only Italian club who has offered him a deal in Italy.

Joey Saputo in the past has made players sign a contract that seems them playing in Italy first with his club (Bologna FC) then after a period of time come over to North America and play for the Montreal Impact. We've seen this done with many players like Dzemaili and others. It might make sense for Joey Saputo to offer this deal to Sneijder so he could get that playing time in Italy, which he wants, then come over to the MLS and play for the Impact.

Tancredi Palmeri‏ did mention to us that it might be in question for Wesley Sneijder to go down to Bologna/Montreal route. This might be the best possible way to see Sneijder in a Montreal Impact jersey.
