Atletico Madrid may have contacted Chelsea about bringing Andre Schürrle to Spain, according to this from Italian Journalist Gianluca DiMarzio. Chelsea reportedly need to cut one non-homegrown player from the squad before the start of the Premier League season, and the alleged interest from Atletico may be the solution to that problem.
Schürrle was instrumental in helping the German national team win the World Cup at this summer’s tournament in Brazil, and had just returned to the Chelsea squad this past week with spirits high. “I want to win trophies at Chelsea”, the forward said in a statement for chelseafc.com. “We need to…show the quality we have.”
