Van Gaal Pimps Sneijder To Chelsea Again

Not for the first time, Dutch coach Louis van Gaal has urged Wesley Sneijder to join Chelsea.

The pint-sized playmaker was the kingpin of Inter Milan’s treble season under Jose Mourinho, and van Gaal says he knows for a fact that The Special One has a place for Sneijder now that he is manager at Chelsea.

Sneijder was linked to the Blues during the pre-season transfer window, when van Gaal first encouraged him to make the move to London.

However, Sneijder currently remains a player at Turkish giants Galatasaray, much to van Gaal’s chagrin.

The coach thinks that Sneijder and Holland’s World Cup ambitions would be better served if he played his club football at Chelsea, and he has made it clear that he would like the player to move.

"I know Chelsea and Jose Mourinho want Sneijder," van Gaal told Turkish newspaper Vatan.

"In my opinion, if possible Sneijder should leave Galatasaray and join Chelsea.

"Playing under Mourinho again would improve his performances and help him regain his form for the national team."

It’s likely that Galatasaray will not take lightly to van Gaal’s meddling in their affairs in the Turkish media.

After all, they were the ones who took a gamble on high-earning Sneijder when his career at Inter appeared to stagnate, and he is contracted to them.
