Chelsea linked with Dutchman

sneijder.jpgThere are some raised eyebrows here in the Football Transfer Tavern after it is claimed that one of Jose Mourinho’s best loved players could well be set to link up with him again at Chelsea, well according to The Sun that is.

Wesley Sneijder has been one of Mourinho’s best players and even won the treble under the Special One at Inter Milan. Now it is claimed that despite having only recently linked up with the likes of Didier Drogba at Galatasaray, the midfield talent is looking for a reunion with his favourite manager once again.

When asked about the possibility of a reunion, the Dutchman claimed: “I have a great relationship with Jose Mourinho. We have kept in contact since our days at Inter.

“Does Chelsea need a playmaker? I’m not sure. In soccer you can never be certain of what will happen next but I’m very happy in Turkey.”

He went on to talk about his first season with his new club and claimed: “Reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League was our target and we reached it.

“The first leg against Real Madrid was disappointing, had we played better we could have progressed. The home leg with the 12th man behind us was amazing.”

Mourinho as we all know thrives on players who love him and subscribe to his philosophy so it would be no shock to us if he made a play for his former star man.

Will Mourinho move for Sneijder or is he too settled in Istanbul? Let us know your thoughts below.
