To put it mildly, Andre Schurrle has been a disappointment so far this season for the Blues. After a good end to the last season and a marvellous World Cup campaign where he helped his team win the biggest competition on the planet, there was a lot of expectation from the German Winger but the World Champion has failed miserably to live up to them.
Injuries and some mysterious illness have so far hampered his chances in the starting eleven while the horrible form also hasn’t helped his case either, add to that it’s January and voila! We have got ourselves a transfer rumour!
For the past couple of days, various tabloids have been reporting the news that Wolfsburg has made a 30m Euro bid for Schurrle. Now, under normal circumstances we would dismiss this as a silly rumour but with Daily Mail, Gianluca Di Marzio, etc. all going through with the news, it might be worthwhile to at least take a look at this.
“The offer delivered to the Blues is 30 million euro. Offensive important for a club that does not have economic problems and wants to establish itself in the European field. The Wolfsburg tries, Schurrle is the dream.” – Gianluca Di Marzio (Sky Sport’s Reporter)
Wolfsburg is currently sitting second in the Bundesliga table and it might not be silly to think they actually want someone of Andre Schurrle’s calibre to help them establish and compete on the European front. I wouldn’t be surprised if Wolfsburg has actually made a bid for the German, but the important question is, are Chelsea really willing to sell Schurrle?
The answer is definitely not!
Selling Schurrle in the January transfer window without any able backup lined up is pure “Arsenal Class” foolish for us. I have always been a big admirer of the German and although it’s true that the he has done nothing worthwhile for us this season, but Schurrle definitely has the potential to be a world-class player in the near future.
Add to that our busy schedule and we need everyone to provide the necessary depth to compete on all fronts. After all we are in for a Quadruple, aren’t we?
And who knows, maybe we get to see the real Schurrle in the second half of the season, firing on all cylinders and taking us to the much-awaited PL title as he did for Germany in the World Cup. How sweet would that be!
