Mourinho was appointed as Chelsea manager on Monday and it has been rumoured that he will be making major changes at Stamford Bridge to tailor the club.

Sneijder played a vital role at Inter Milan when Mourinho oversaw a successful stint at San Siro which included a Champions League victory and the Dutch midfielder revealed that he is still in contact with the manager.

Speaking to SporX, Sneijder said: "I have a great relationship with Jose Mourinho. We have kept in contact since our days at Inter."

"Does Chelsea need a playmaker? I'm not sure. In football you can never be certain of what will happen next but I'm very happy in Turkey."

Sneijder was initially criticised after joining Galatasaray as his fitness levels were questioned, but the Netherlands international looked back fondly at their Champions League run.

"Reaching the quarter-finals of the Champions League was our target and we reached it," he added.

"The first leg against Real Madrid was disappointing, had we played better we could have progressed. The home leg with the twelfth man behind us was amazing."
