Roma manager Rudi Garcia has ruled out a move for Galatasaray playmaker Wesley Sneijder.

“He’s [Wesley Sneijder] a great player but it’s rare that the winter break changes things,” Garcia told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“It serves only the rich, who can modify their squads.

“But I don’t cry over not having [Lionel] Messi or [Cristiano] Ronaldo. I just hope that we can improve the squad next year.

“We need some stronger players, but it all depends on their availability. The budget is not everything. The model is Atletico Madrid.

“We’re on the right road, though. I’m satisfied with our season. We have had many injuries and the Champions League sapped our energy.”

Galatasaray have set a €20 million valuation on their Dutch star but may be willing to part company with him due to the financial situation at the club.

Sneijder joined Galatasaray from Inter in 2013 for €8 million and still has just under two-years left on his contract.
