Andre Schurrle: Has been linked with Chelsea for many months

Reports have suggested that Jose Mourinho is not keen on bringing in the German international to Stamford Bridge despite Chelsea's long pursuit of the 22-year-old.

Schurrle was close to joining Chelsea last season, but the move did not go through as the two clubs did not agree over the personal terms in the deal.

Leverkusen general manager Rudi Voller remains confident that the transfer, thought to be worth a fee of £20million, will be completed soon.

"We will not react to something like that [reports that the deal is off]," said the former German international. "We are still working on the transfer. The last signatures are missing."

Schurrle's agent, Ingo Haspel, echoed Voller's words over his client.

He said: "I'd like to think that the deal will come off over the next couple of days."

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.
