Chelsea fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern are looking all confused at the news that Andre Schurrle’s move to the club may well be caught up in red tape well according to Sky Sports at least.
It had been thought that a deal was basically done for the player to join the West London club and given how hard Chelsea have chased the player we thought it would be little more than a formality.
The problem however involves another one of Chelsea’s current players – Kevin de Bruyne who has spent the season on loan at Werder Bremen. The player has impressed in Bundesliga – so much so that several clubs want to take him on a permanent deal.
This was music to Chelsea’s ears and they thought that a swap plus cash deal with Bayer Leverkusen could make the difference in the Schurrle deal. Chelsea were even keen to send the young player out on loan for another year in order to land their target.
They did not however count on de Bruyne refusing to move to the side – in order to hold out for a move to the only club he is actually interested in joining – Borussia Dortmund. The Champions League runners-up are also thought to be keen on landing the player and now it seems Chelsea may have to do a little bit more negotiating in order to land Schurrle.
Will the Schurrle deal fall through this summer? Rate this rumour below.
