Wesley Sneijder is unlikely to reunite with former Inter Milan coach Jose Mourinho according to the midfielder himself.
Sneijder told the press that he admired his former manager but owed his current club too much.
"I have a special relationship with Jose Mourinho and enjoyed working with him, but I can't leave Galatasaray in the lurch or the fans that I admire," he revealed. "I want to play till January at least and help my team. I love Istanbul so much."
Sneijder added, "I've met a new country and a new culture. It would not be easy to leave and turn my back (on Galatasaray). My club has expectations of me. The board worked so hard for my transfer. I can't go anywhere because I owe them."
Recent reports by ESPN indicated that Sneijder's current club Galatasaray was open to selling the midfielder for a £12.75m fee this summer.
Sneijder was part of the Inter Milan squad that Mourinho led to Champions league glory; Sneijder scored three goals and six assists in 11 Champions league matches during that run.
Sneijder was transferred to Galatasaray in January after scoring one goal in five games for Inter Milan. During his time with the Turkish club, Sneijder helped the team to the quarterfinals against Real Madrid. He scored one goal in that stretch.
Sneijder recently made his return to his national Dutch team after intermittent absences. However, the midfielder was stripped of his captaincy due to his inconsistent form.
