Chelsea ready to offload star to nab Man United target

Chelsea are considering selling Andre Schurrle to free up funds and space for Dortmund star Marco Reus, according to reports from the Daily Star.

The Blues are one of a host of Premier League sides, including Manchester United, said to be tracking the Germany international, who’s £20m BVB release clause is due to kick in at the end of the season.

The likes of Real Madrid and Barcelona are said to be after Reus, with a move in the summer rumoured to be the most likely outcome.

But, Jose Mourinho has told Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich that the versatile forward is his top target, with a move this month a possibility as the Londoners look to win the race.

Schurrle, who operates in a similar role to his compatriot, is likely to make way.

Bundesliga side Wolfsburg are understood to be keen on the pacey 24-year-old, while there are claims that Dortmund themselves are interested.

Schurrle helped Germany to World Cup glory over the summer, yet he’s been an infrequent first-teamer for Chelsea this term, making just five Premier League starts.
