Chelsea and Tottenham are being encouraged in their pursuit of Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder. The Mirror says Blues boss Jose Mourinho has been told he can have a reunion with Sneijder in exchange for £12.75million.

Sneijder is also seen at White Hart Lane as the kind of experienced leader that Andre Villas-Boas' side have lacked in recent seasons.

Galatasaray president Unal Aysal has told the west Londoners that the 29-year-old can go if the price is right. He said: "I have been following the rumours about Sneijder, but we have not received an offer for him..

"If an offer in the region of €15million (£12.75m) comes in, we might decide to sell him though."
