Galatasaray coach Cesare Prandelli is counting on Wesley Sneijder this season.

The Dutchman has been linked with Manchester United and AS Monaco this summer. Indeed, Sneijder admitted he'd "find it difficult" to turn down Louis van Gaal should United come calling.

However, Prandelli insists he has no plans to part with the midfielder.

"Sneijder is a very important player for us," he declared yesterday.
