Chelsea transfers: Wesley Sneijder rules out Blues move
Chelsea transfers: Wesley Sneijder says he does not have any intention of leaving Galatasaray despite Blues link
Wesley Sneijder has moved to end the speculation linking him with a transfer to Chelsea by insisting that he intends to stay at Galatasaray.
The 29-year-old has been touted as a possible transfer target for José Mourinho after the Portuguese coach returned to the Stamford Bridge helm on a four-year deal earlier this month.
Galatasaray claimed that they would listen to offers of around £12.75m for Sneijder last week.
But Sneijder, who won an historic treble at Inter Milan under Mourinho, says that he plans to stay at the Turkish club.
“I moved here for a new culture and to get to know a new culture, and I can’t forget that,” said Sneijder.
“I have a good relationship with Mourinho and enjoyed working with them, but I love Istanbul and I owe a lot to Galatasaray.”
