Is Schurrle a Saleable Option?

Newspaper gossip suggests that might be the case.

The notion that Atletico Madrid are of the belief that Chelsea might be persuaded to part with the German World Cup winner, appears to be growing by the day.

With Atletico having sold several of their stars their manager, the Argentine Diego Simeone, wants Schurrle in his squad due to his versatility, whereby he can play on both wings and also through the middle.

The 2014 World Cup was a good one for Schurrle, three goals leading up to the final plus an assist in the final for the winning goal, have led to Schurrle`s stock rising.

Atletico are aware that Chelsea paid Bayer Leverkusen £19 million for the player and are hoping that a similar fee will see the 23 year-old move to La Liga.

The insinuation is also being bandied about that having secured Filipe Luis and Diego Costa from Atletico, as well as recalling Thibaut Courtois from his three year loan spell with them, Chelsea might be willing to do a deal to keep the relationship between the two clubs amicable.

To which I would say, what utter bollox, does such camaraderie exist in this game of ours anymore, or is it everyone for themselves?

But more importantly, will Schurrle stay or will, as Atletico hope, he`ll be sold on?

I hope not and anyone who thinks otherwise is a hater, speaks non sense, is bashing, etc. Etc.
BlueMIA
Oh really Blue? so those who are glad to se ethe back of Lukaku are haters huh/??? Take a look in the mirror .. Schurrle while being useful hasnt exactly flattered...if we do sell Schurrle then I would be certain that we will be getting Falcao or Cavani to partner Costa ..in my opinion this would be good ..Costa Drogba and (Falcao or Cavani or similar ) sounds good to me ...and I dont hate Schurrle or anyone else..so dont imply that because maybe some people are looking for improvements that that implies that they "hate" the outgoing player....dosnt work
Blue_Mel
No way. This is Jose's secret weapon. The boy is a perfect player for our style of play.
BOTUM
Hater hater hater... you can bash and bad mouth all you want... non sense non sense non sense. I realize that was bait but oh well.
BlueMIA
Not forgetting old faithful lol Torres if course
Blue_Mel
Schurrle is "useful but hasn't flattered?" LOL One of 3 Chelsea players to score a hat trick, and he did it in his inaugural season. Seems pretty flattering to me. Considering we all agree that we tend to play against "park the bus" teams, Schurrle, for me, has been incredibly "useful". I'd even say, effective. He is a Mourinho type player, for sure... If he's on his way out, I'll believe it when I see it.

Mou has once again turned the club to a selling one.every club can now snare our players.whats the need of selling young players and getting drogbas and falcao?Mou is destroying our youth players moral.what a ***** is in our board doing.
mzee69
a selling club? Jose sold two players who were squad players nothing more! Luiz was a liability and the WC showed Lukaku is so far from the finished article it was untrue!
merlin
We will be absolutely foolish to rid of Schurrle. He is a huge asset as a direct winger with a lovely finish on him. With a creative central midfielder in the form of Fabergas, I have no doubt we will see a more effective Schurrle this season.
frosty penguinz
I can`t believe we would be stupid enough to get rid of Schurrle. He is the only front man that we have who has got pace and knows where the goal is. He`s been a breath of fresh air since he joined the club. No doubt we would replace him with yet another defender.
Blueheart9
Does anyone really believe this rumour? Seriously? A highly rated winger who plays back-up striker...
solid7
@mzee69 - how many more articles are you going to copy and paste that same silly comment into?
solid7
I would hate to see Andre leave. He is a great impact player and for want of a better word - a Mourinho-esque player. Unfortunately, we need to sell 1 foreign player to achieve our quota for next season and with Mikel and Torres unlikely to leave for lesser contracts perhaps £25mn for Schurrle represents good busines???
Matthew Henshaw
Well nothing suprises me anymore as Jose gets his way but i can say Schurrle was a Jose's buy therefore unlikely to leave but my doubts are increasing as far as TC is concerned as he has not been allocated a squad no.
shaka09
That will be a big mistake. No amount will make it ok. Schurlle is not only a team player but also plays frm the heart. Only way i can see it to make sense will that He is sold and replaced by Reus .
Tekszy Maloney
schrulle for sale..joke of the season...lol
shlok27
nearly as funny as your spelling of Andre's name :-)
merlin
Lol @ merlin.
Krested Kal-el
I think if we do, we will be look at from thereon as a selling club. Anyways i see him as an integral part of jose setup and jose actually likes him very much
kolagold25
Good article with wrong title. I assume that's the reason why they've started the nonsense bashing again. @blue_mia and blue_mel, why cant you move on and forget about comments made in the past?
Cyprian Bassey
Mehn! It's gonna be a good biz,I know my dear blues. We sell better and buy best. Common blues keep the relationship going.
Ibrahim 'makanaki' G
Cyprian go visit the Mikel article posted today.
BlueMIA
The comments section that is.
BlueMIA
You gotta be kidding…Sell Schurrle, the only direct attacking wing that takes on defenders (other than Hazard), makes incredible runs into the box, is a model player and overall great team player…that Schurrle? the player (other than Hazard) that can actually score a goal…that Schurrle? Sell them either Willian or Salah..
lamarochs
Selling Schurrle?? Madness! Only for 60m+
Tim Kennar
Hopefully this is someones idea of a sick joke but i must say i am starting to get worried. This was how those "rumors" regarding Mata, Luiz and Lukaku began...unlike all those though selling Schurrle at whatever price makes absolutely no sense..absolutely no sense at all..and then to Atletico? those guys dont exact roll in cash like PSG, Monaco, Real or Barca so you can be certain the price would not even be anything to write home about. Common sense says no way in Gods green earth this happens but if it does we might as well just forget any hope of getting any silverware this season because from a goal scoring perspective Schurrle is our own real goal threat not named Costa or Hazard. Selling Schurrle in my mind especially in August of the transfer window when we have essentially zero chance of getting a player of similar or better quality essentially would mean Jose and the board have lost the plot entirely!!!

This is never gonna happen. Do you really believe that Jose will retain salah and sell Andre to maintain the squad limit numbers...Spanish media people are really something...
Blu_run
Why chelsea are going to do some favour for At.Madrid. Is it because they allowed Costa, TC, Luis to move??? Pathetic logic
Blu_run
non cfc fans r so annoying .. they love to comment waste things in the threads ...their own forum is boring thats y they come to ruin ours lol and shirley wont be sold for sure like merlin said ... atletico madrid should be greatful to cfc for giving our courtois to them ...
gary777
we can use schurrle as a LF or a wing attacker he iz so versatile and is a superb finisher too. no way he 'll be sold this season like an asset like him in chelsea he can have a price tag ¸40-50m near days.
Shuvam Cfc
If such decision as to selling Andre Shurlle is made,we'll come to regret it big time. I see him becoming a world class in two season time. For heaven sake u don't joke with the potential of German like Andre. And we know the tract record of Atletico turn decent striker to world class finisher. Enough said.
Ewuola Abraham
and the germans r worth the money they come big when it comes to match winners with experience he will flourish
gary777
Chelsea will be the most stupid club on earth if they sell him, not to talk of selling him for nothing less than £40m. This guy is good and even more deadly than Hazard in scoring goals, mostly distant and unexpected goals.
Killerpass
Schurrle for sale????? SCHURRLE NOT
Ceegnature
It would be an absolute shocker if the club/Jose are even contemplating such thoughts eve though these sudden reports from nowhere have me worried. The player looks to be settled and happy and is a fan of the club from a long time and wants to win many more trophies with us. I was always one of few who thought he would be a good signing before he actually joined. Most thought of him as a luxury buy, but he brought with him selfless hard work, determination, work rate and a knack for goals. We have tended to muck up once majorly in each of the previous windows in last 2-3 years leaving us fans flabbergasted. I was somewhat waiting for the other shoe to drop in this window, where we have been quite good in our dealings, and just hope this isn't it. Shirley has tremendous potential and plays with his heart. Hope these are just rumors and nothing else. #upthechels
