Nice midfielder Wesley Sneijder is set for another move in the January transfer window, this time leaving for a shock club.
That club is LA Galaxy as Sneijder calls time on his European career that has stalled in recent years.
The Dutch playmaker was once seen as one of the best midfielders in world football during his prime at Inter Milan.
Under Jose Mourinho, Wesley played some of his best football and was a pivotal part of the Inter side that won the treble in 2009-10 season.
Though, the player left the Italian giants due to a dispute with the hierarchy and eventually moved to Galatasaray in Turkey.
The Dutch midfielder continued to impress at his new club, though he never truly recaptured the quality he showed at Inter.
After a few years at the club, another dispute with the hierarchy left another rift with the player and club officials.
That left the player with no choice but to buy himself out of his contract to get himself a move away from the Turkish giants.
That saw him join Nice who had become somewhat of a success story in France.
Now, after a lack of playing time in Ligue 1, Sneijder has elected for another move and has reportedly agreed terms with LA Galaxy.
The MLS side has housed midfielders such as David Beckham and Steven Gerrard in the past and is no stranger to talented players winding down their careers.
José Mourinho: “A number 10 for me is an eight-and-a-half when the team loses the ball and the number 10 is a nine-and-a-half when the team has the ball. Who is my perfect number 10? Wesley Sneijder and Deco. Mesut Özil was very good at Real Madrid as well.” pic.twitter.com/79NyCxmtEu

Now, it looks as though he has found the player he wants but could cost up to €70m to sign him.
