The Netherlands international added that he is happy at his current club, Galatasaray, but did concede that if Mourinho came calling he could not honestly say he would snub the approach. “I have a great relationship with Jose Mourinho,” Sneijder told SporX. “ We have kept in contact since our days at Inter.
