The reported Liverpool target Stephan El Shaarawy could possibly be offered to Turkish giants Galatasartay by AC Milan in a possible attempt to win the signing of Dutch playmaker Wesley Sneijder to bring him back to the Serie A.

The attempt to bring him to the San Siro will be difficult with reports showing that Barclays Premier League giants Arsenal, Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, and Spurs are also in the chase to win the Dutchman’s signature.

Liverpool fans shouldn’t worry by the recent news, given that the Turkish giants are facing financial difficulties of about $57 million worth of debt that will be payed in the coming 12 months. The player exchange will be quite unattractive to Galatasaray’s wallet.

Should Milan depart with one of their best top-rated players to secure the signing of Sneijder’s signature is greatly debatable showing that El Shaarawy has so much potential to become one of the world’s best in the near future. So far this season, El Shaarawy has barely played this season for the Rossoneri due to the metatarsal injury he picked up in October in the opening weeks of the new 2013-2014 season.

Reports say that Milan are possibly willing to depart with their 21-year old top goalscorer from last season due to the fitness woes. However, his signing wont come cheap to interested clubs with reports stating his worth somewhere around $35,250,000 USD. So a player exchange with Galatasaray for Sneijder wont go through with Sneijder being worth more than that.
