Confirmed: Wesley Sneijder considering sensational return to football

Utrecht Chief confirms Wesley Sneijder in talks with the club as Dutchman considering sensational return to football

Sneijder retired last summer but reportedly looks to build up his fitness in the following weeks ahead of a potential comeback.

Wesley Sneijder will start training with DHSC, a Dutch fifth-tier club, from July 27 as he aims to come out of retirement with Eredivisie side FC Utrecht, according to RTV Utrecht.

The 36-year-old hung up his boots in the summer of 2019 and it would be fair to say that he's in an awful physical condition right now.

Hence, the ex-midfielder looks to build up his fitness in the following weeks, as per the local source.

Utrecht's technical director Jordy Zuidam is open to the idea of Sneijder wearing the shirt his hometown club and has already held talks with him.

"Utrecht does not have the budgets that Wesley is used to at other clubs. He knows that better than anyone. Money has not yet been discussed. If Wesley is willing to do this, he will also help Utrecht," he told De Telegraaf's podcast.

 "It will not be a financial choice for him, but he then chooses a feeling. We talked about it that way. That is why we have not yet talked about money.

He has asked the time and space to think seriously about it. If he is willing to make himself fit and ready, that is certainly interesting for Utrecht."

If Wesley manages to come out of retirement ahead of the next season, he'll be the second Netherlands great to do so over the past month as Arjen Robben returned to his boyhood club FC Groningen in June after hanging up his boots last summer.
