Sneijder blocked Real Madrid move for kid brother

Wesley Sneijder has revealed he stopped kid brother Rodney from joining Real Madrid.

Rodney has impressed with Ajax's youth team this season and Real were keen to sign him for next term.

But Real star Sneijder revealed: "Real Madrid wanted him and Rodney was very happy about that. But when I heard, I stopped the discussions. I am not in favour of juniors increasingly going to top clubs.

"I've told him that he first must make a break through at Ajax."
