Champions League winner Wesley Sneijder is on the brink of becoming the latest star name to sign for ambitious Ligue 1 outfit Nice after the two parties reached an agreement in principle on Sunday.
Unfashionable Nice have made a habit of signing top class talent over the last few seasons, with France international Hatem Ben Arfa, Italian striker Mario Balotelli, Brazilian centre-back Dante and Morocco playmaker Younes Belhanda all joining over the past two years.
Now, 33-year-old Dutch international Sneijder, who won the Champions League with Inter Milan in 2010, is set to sign a one-year deal with an option for another year, according to a club source.
On Sunday evening, Nice posted on Twitter to say they had reached an "agreement in principle" with the former Real Madrid and Ajax star.
They also posted a photo of the player at their club offices and an emoji of two shaking hands.
Sneijder, who arrived in Nice at 5pm, will undergo a medical on Monday and could put pen to paper later in the day.
The attacking midfielder, who played in the 2010 World Cup final for the Netherlands and has won league titles in four countries, was released by Galatasaray at the end of last season, meaning he is available for free.
