Los Angeles FC are close to agreeing a two-year deal for Wesley Sneijder to become its first Designated Player.

LAFC will begin their MLS tenure as an expansion team in 2018.

Sneijder has been offered a contract worth $3.5 million per season.

Sneijder, 33, still has 12 months to run on his contract with Galatasaray. With LAFC not due to start its MLS campaign until March 2018, he will remain in Turkey until the winter transfer window.
