There isn’t much missing from Wesley Sneijder’s CV.
He’s starred for Ajax, turned out for Real Madrid, won the Champions League with Inter Milan and made more than 100 appearances for Holland.
But the journey isn’t done yet, with Sneijder reportedly signing for Al-Gharafa, who play in the Qatar Stars League.
Sneijder joined Nice from Galatasaray last summer but the deal hasn’t worked out.
The 33-year-old has played just five times in Ligue 1 this season so both parties have decided it’s time to cash in.
There’s now the tantalising prospect of Sneijder going head-to-head with Xavi, who is seeing out the last season of his career with Al Sadd.
Sneijder isn’t the first maverick to rock up at Al-Gharafa.
Marcel Desailly, Ze Roberto and Juninho Pernambucano have all turned out for The Cheetahs.
Juninho captained the side and helped the club to a treble in 2010, after which he was unsurprisingly named Player of the Year.
No pressure then, Wes.
