The 65-year-old manager says he would love to sign the Netherlands international but insists a deal is "unlikely" due to the huge wages the midfielder would command

“I was asked by one agent if I wanted to sign Sneijder,” Redknapp told The Sun.
“Of course I do. However, he’s on about £200,000 a week and now he wants to join QPR?
“I won’t name the agent, but let’s just say I think a deal is unlikely.”
The former Tottenham manager is expected to be busy during the transfer window as he attempts to save the club from relegation.
The Rs have been linked with a number of players, including a £5 million move for West Ham midfielder Mohamed Diame. However Redknapp refused to comment on his transfer plans, saying only: “We’ll wait and see.”
