Sneijder Would Consider Chelsea Switch

Dutch international midfielder, Wesley Sneijder, likes the idea of playing under Jose Mourinho again.

Rumours emerged earlier this week that Mourinho would consider bringing Sneijder to Chelsea, where he has just been confirmed as manager for the second time.

Pint-sized schemer Sneijder enjoyed great success under The Special One at Inter Milan, where they won the Serie A, Champions League and Coppa Italia together.

Ever since, Sneijder has flirted with a move to the Premier League, but somehow finds himself plying his trade at Turkish giants Galatasaray instead.

However, he says that his relationship with Mourinho remains strong, and that if Chelsea were to need a player of his ilk, he would entertain the notion.

"I have a great relationship with Jose Mourinho," the 28-year-old told 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."

It’s probably a good thing that Sneijder is so happy in Turkey, because unless Mourinho can somehow bring back the player who shone so brightly for Inter Milan nearly four years ago, there is simply no place for him at Stamford Bridge.

In players like Eden Hazard, Juan Mata and Oscar, the Blues already have younger players capable of doing what Sneijder currently does and more.

And so to answer his question quite frankly: No, Chelsea do not need a playmaker, Wesley.
