Schurrle’s Signing With Chelsea Imminent

It looks like the moment Chelsea fans have been looking forward to is closer than ever. According to recent rumors Andre Schurrle is about to sign with the Blues by the end of the week. The German international is one of Europe’s most valuable and promising youngsters. He fits perfectly with Chelsea’s new transfer strategy and will definitely be a nice addition to a team that is already impressing the fans with footballers such as Hazard, Oscar or Mata.

Schurrle, who is still with Leverkusen, is expected to come to London at the end of this week. Skysports reveals that if the transfer finally goes through, Chelsea’s managerial team will be quite proud of their achievement. They have been monitoring the 22 year old attacker for a while now and have already placed a bid for him at the beginning of the 2012-2013 season. The Blues started off with a £12 million offer which was not enough. Rumors stay that they will now pay £20 million in order to secure the German’s signature.

Chelsea tried to include one of their most promising players in the Schurrle deal, but failed to convince Leverkusen, who are not short of players. Kevin de Bruyne could have ended up playing for the German side, but the deal did not go through.

It is expected that Schurrle will receive VIP treatment each time he visits Chelsea while the whole transfer is being worked out. He received special treatment when he was invited to watch Chelsea playing against City in the FA Cup earlier in the year.

If Schurrle moves to London, he will reportedly start on a £90,000 a week salary, which will make him one of the most well remunerated young players in Europe.

According to numerous reports, Ingo Haspel, Schurrle’s agent seems to think it is a matter of time until the German international signs the deal. It will be a major step for Schurrle and his career if he comes to West London but he will have to face tough opposition though with rumors saying that Falcao has already agreed to a deal in principal with Chelsea.
