Galatasaray have responded to speculation that Jose Mourinho is keen to reunite with former Inter Milan charge Wesley Sneijder by admitting that they would accept offers of £12m and above for the Dutch international according to Italian source CalcioMercato.

Mourinho is said to have a close relationship with Sneijder, who he managed for one season during their shared time at the San Siro, during which Inter Milan won the treble of Serie A, Coppa Italia and Champions League titles.

Sneijder only moved to Istanbul side Galatasary in January but helped the Turkish giants to secure a Super Lig title as well as a Champions League quarter-final, which they narrowly lost to Real Madrid.

Galatasaray’s president, Unal Aysal, is quoted as saying in response to discussion of a possible Chelsea bis for Sneijder;

“I’ve heard the rumors about Sneijder but we have not received any offers. But if we got an offer of €15m, we may decide to sell him.”

Jose Mourinho may well be keen to bring in the creative Dutchman, feeling he could work well alongside the likes of Juan Mata, Eden Hazard and Oscar.

Sneijder moved to Galasataray after a protracted exit process from Inter Milan, where the former Real Madrid and Ajax midfielder’s career turned sour after Mourinho’s move in 2010.
