The Daily Star have Chelsea fans looking pleased here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim the Blues could well be set to keep Andre Schurrle after all.
The former Bayer Leverkusen forward has been linked with an exit from the Blues for some time since returning from the World Cup.
It had seemed that after Chelsea were linked with not only Marco Reus but Gareth Bale as well, the German World Cup winner’s time at Stamford Bridge could well be drawing to a close.
Luckily for Schurrle that does not seem to be the case with at least one of his potential suitors Schalke – now managed by former Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo – admitting that they were not planning on making any bids for him this winter .
This is not to mention the fact that we don’t think Jose Mourinho would be too keen on selling the German to a rival club in England, limiting the destinations for Schurrle even further.
Whilst he may not be one of Mourinho’s favourite players, it is safe to say that our punters are big fans of the versatile star and we think that he could become a Blues star yet.
Chelsea fans. Would you keep Schurrle at the club? Has he done enough to convince you that he has a long-term future in SW6? Let us know your thoughts below.
