Van Gaal: Sneijder Should Join Chelsea

Holland coach Louis van Gaal has advised Wesley Sneijder to join Chelsea if he gets the chance to.

The Dutch international midfielder has effectively been transfer listed by his Turkish club, Galatasaray, after they said they would listen to bids in excess of €15 million for his services.

Sneijder has been linked to Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur of late, and van Gaal says it would make sense on a lot of levels for him to join the Blues.

Sneijder has not been the same player since his relationship with Jose Mourinho ended when The Special One left Inter Milan for Real Madrid.

And now that Mou is boss again at Stamford Bridge, a move there is being touted as Sneijder’s big chance to resuscitate his flagging club career.

“Sneijder to Chelsea is just a rumour at the moment, but it would be much easier for me to keep an eye on his progress if he were to make the move to Chelsea,” van Gaal said, according to Soccernet.

“I could be at Chelsea within an hour from Netherlands and Mourinho is a friend of mine.”

29-year-old Sneidjer ensured his name remained in the headlines by scoring for Holland in their friendly win over China.

And van Gaal has added that the pint-sized schemer has reacted maturely to losing the national captaincy to Manchester United star, Robin van Persie.

“I had a good talk about it with Wesley and he’s dealing with the situation pretty well,” van Gaal explained.

“I have no doubt that everybody will help him.”
