Sneijder open to Mourinho reunion

Galatasaray attacker Wesley Sneijder has opened the door to a reunion with former manager Jose Mourinho at the Chelsea next season.

Galatasaray coach Fatih Terim believes Wesley Sneijder will prove his importance next season
Wesley Sneijder is open to a reunion with Jose Mourinho.

The Dutch international and the returning Blues boss formed a successful partnership at Inter Milan, winning the Serie A, the Coppa Italia and the Champions League.

And the 28-year-old admitted his close relationship with Mourinho may sway him to make the move to London.

"I have a great relationship with Jose Mourinho," SporX. "We have kept in contact since our days at Inter.

"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."

Sneijder enjoyed a stellar start to his Galatasaray career, helping the club reach the Champions League quarter-final stage, where they were knocked out by the Mourinho-led Real Madrid.

However, the Ajax and Madrid player believed the Turkish club could have caused a major upset against his former employers.

"Reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League was our target and we reached it," he added.

"The first leg against Real Madrid was disappointing, had we played better we could have progressed. The home leg with the twelfth man behind us was amazing."
