Wesley Sneijder is a Dutch international footballer who plays for the Italian and European giants Inter Milan. Sneijder is considered as one of the best midfielders in the modern game and is also one of the most sought after players in the world of football.
Sneijder is a graduate of the world’s best football academy, the youth academy at Dutch giants AFC Ajax in Amsterdam. Sneijder was born in a football family in the Dutch city of Utrecht: his father himself was a footballer. Sneijder made his debut for Ajax in December 2002 against SBV Excelsior and readily made his way through to the first team.
In the summer of 2007, Real Madrid signed the highly rated versatile Dutch midfielder who can play on the wings too and is one of the most accurate passers of the ball in the game.
Madrid paid Ajax a staggering 27 million euros but the player has been worth every penny for the Madrid giants. Sneijder has been one of the important factors for Real Madrid retaining their La Liga crown in the 2007-2008 season.
However, he was considered a surplus to requirement after the completion of the 2008-09 campaign, and he was let go. Sneijder moved to Inter Milan, and promptly won the Serie A, the Coppa Italia and the UEFA Champions League in his debut campaign at San Siro.
Sneijder is also a Dutch international footballer and made his debut for the senior side against Portugal in April, 2004. He featured for Dutch team in Euro 2004, World Cup 2006 and World Cup 2010.
