Louis Van Gaal has ordered Wesley Sneijder to move to Chelsea to team up with one of his former managers, Jose Mourinho,  The Daily Star reports.

Manchester United have been long term admirers of the attacker, and even had a bid turned down for Sneijder this January when he was still at Inter Milan.

But with one goal in eight appearances so far this season, Van Gaal is desperate to return one of his star men to former glories, in order to help Holland go one better and win the World Cup next year in Brazil, and with the possible guidance of his former manager, Van Gaal reckons that working under Mourinho again will help bring the best out of the creative midfielder.

“I know Chelsea and Jose Mourinho want Sneijder,” van Gaal told Vatan.

“In my opinion, if possible Sneijder should leave Galatasaray and join Chelsea. Playing under Mourinho again would improve his performances and help him regain his form for the national team.”

The pair worked together in the 2009/10 season at Inter Milan, the season where Inter won the treble, which included the Champions League Final victory over Bayern Munich. In that season, Sneijder scored eight goals in forty-one appearances.
