Wesley Sneijder has confirmed that his agent is in talks with Galatasaray over unpaid wages.

Reports in the Netherlands suggest he may have gone three months without being paid, entitling him to leave the club on a free transfer if he chooses to do so.

And the former Inter and Real Madrid playmaker confirmed to De Telegraaf that his representatives are currently in negotiations with the cash-strapped Turkish giants.

"Galatasaray are working hard to sort their financial situation,” he said.

“My management is in talks with the club over a solution. Right now I am focused on the Netherlands national team.”

Club president Unal Aysal has confirmed that he does not plan to run for re-election as the side's debts continue to increase amidst fears they could soon face further sanctions for breaching Uefa’s financial fair play ruling.

In May the club were found to be in breach of the regulations and agreed to a settlement which ordered them to drastically cut spending.
