Chelsea fans are looking confused here in the Football Transfer Tavern as our landlord tells them the news from Metro that claims Jose Mourinho is NOT interested in Marco Reus.
The Blues are currently preparing for a crunch Champions League game against Schalke this evening that can see them secure top place in their Champions League group.
When asked by the German media if he was keen on signing Reus – who of course plays for Schalke’s rivals Borussia Dortmund – Mourinho made it very clear that he was not on the Blues’ transfer wishlist.
Now our landlord makes the very valid point that not only does this probably mean that the Blues are set to miss out on Reus who is in hot demand; they may well be willing to give another chance to Andre Schurrle.
The former Bayer Leverkusen man has recently been billed as a potential makeweight in any deal to bring Reus to Stamford Bridge.
Some of our punters actually think this latest news is positive with both Willian and Schurrle displaying flashes that they can be key players for the Blues in the long-term.
Chelsea fans. Did your club even need to pursue Reus this January given the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian already feature in your first team? Let us know your thoughts below.
