Andre Schurrle: Bayer Leverkusen man heading to Chelsea

There were fears Jose Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge could affect a transfer which has beeen lined up for weeks.

But a statement on the Chelsea website confirmed the deal will go through subject to Schurrle passing a medical and agreeing personal terms.

The statement read: "Chelsea Football Club and Bayer 04 Leverkusen have reached an agreement for the transfer of André Schürrle, subject to the completion of legal documentation and related matters, including personal terms and passing a medical."

The 22-year-old will officially go down as the first signing of Mourinho's second spell as manager.

A statement from Leverkusen announced Schurrle's departure in conjunction with the signing of Hamburg's South Korea striker Heung-Min Son.

Director Wolfgang Holzhauser said: "We have made it clear from the beginning that Andre Schurrle's departure would only be possible only if we found an adequate alternative.

"We have now found this alternative by signing Heung-Min Son and thus, in our view, there is nothing to stand in the way of Andre Schurrle's move."

Son's arrival on a five-year contract comes after Mourinho blocked the possible departure of Chelsea's Belgium international Kevin De Bruyne in part-exchange for Schurrle.

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.

It's fair to say that the 'Moyes Out' brigade is understandably out in force, whilst there are also staunch defences of Mourinho and Arteta. Plus, Liverpool fans can almost taste it.
