I think FSG cleared wages like Cole, Sahin, Carroll..
To bring in a world class player like Sneijder. Whom I would see as Gerrard's replacement. As Gerrard's legs are going he no longer can make darting runs . Ayre himself said we could bring in anybody we wanted. So clearly money isn't an issue.
Having Sneijder would show our intent.. Suarez would be excited at such a transfer, therefore he'd be more inclined to stay. We also could attract other top players who otherwise would've dismissed us.
