Dutchman says it is unlikely he will move to Stamford Bridge.
Galatasaray playmaker Wesley Sneijder has responded to speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea this summer.
Following the return of Jose Mourinho at Stamford Bridge, rumours have surfaced over potential transfer targets that the Portuguese tactician is likely to chase in the next few months.
Having enjoyed several successful years at Inter together, it is reported that he will look to be reunited with Dutch ace Sneijder, who is currently plying his trade in Turkey with the league champions.
Despite the appeal of moving to England to play under Mourinho again, the Dutchman doesn’t see a move likely to happen but hasn’t completely ruled out the idea.
“I have a great relationship with Jose Mourinho, we have kept in contact since our days at Inter Milan.
“Does Chelsea need a playmaker? I’m not sure. In football you can never be certain of what will happen next but I’m very happy in Turkey,” he told SporX as reported by turkish-football.com.
The 28-year-old joined the Turkish giants last season, and made 12 appearances including a late appearance in their Champions League run.
Having talked up the atmosphere and lifestyle in Istanbul, it appears as though Sneijder is happy to remain with Gala for the foreseeable future.
Furthermore, with the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Juan Mata providing competition in similar roles, it would be difficult to see where the former Real Madrid star would fit in, if it all.
However, should a move to Chelsea become a more realistic proposition later this summer, it will be interesting to see whether the idea of joining up with Mourinho again will be too difficult to turn down.
