Sneijder refutes Chelsea link

Galatasaray playmaker Wesley Sneijder admits he is 'always in talks with Mourinho', but rejected suggestions that he is close to joining Chelsea.

The 29-year-old has only been at the Turkish outfit for six months, having made a ?7.5million switch from Inter Milan in the January transfer window.

Sneijder had been signed by Jose Mourinho in 2009, joining the Nerazzurri for a reported fee of ?15m from Real Madrid.

He played regularly under the guidance of the 'Special One' and the two have been in regular contact ever since the Portuguese tactician switched to Real in 2010.

However, the Netherlands international has played down speculation that suggests he is on the verge of being reunited with Mourinho, at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking to reporters at Galatasaray's pre-season training camp in Slovenia, he said: "I am always in talks with Mourinho. I am in contact with him right now.

"But this has nothing to do with any transfer negotiations. We are good friends and keep in touch regularly."
