Wesley Sneijder has rubbished speculation linking him with a move to Chelsea this summer.

Jose Mourinho was reportedly interested in reuniting with Sneijder, having signed the midfielder from Real Madrid for Inter Milan in 2009. The pair went on to win the treble together a year later.

Sneijder, who moved to Galatasaray from San Siro in the January transfer window, admitted he keeps in touch with Mourinho on a regular basis but only as friends.

"I am always in talks with Mourinho. I am in contact with him right now," said Sneijder.

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