Chelsea wrap up Schurrle deal

Andre Schurrle has put pen to paper on a 5 year contract to complete his £18 million move to Chelsea. The young German was able to sign his contract after passing legal requirements and formalities such as personal terms.

The 22-year-old attacker, previously playing for Bayer Leverkusen, becomes Jose Mourinho's first signing of his second spell at Chelsea. A deal was attempted last year but Bayer held the deal off. Schurrle impressed many last season with a strong campaign, scoring 14 goals in 43 appearances for the Bundesliga outfit. He has played for the German national team at U19 and U21 level and has since gone on to score 7 goals while earning 24 caps for Germany.

The Ludwigshafen-born player moved to Bayer Leverkusen from 1. FSV Mainz 05 in 2011, where he scored 20 goals in 66 games for the O-Fives before joining Bayer Leverkusen. He was a Ludwigshafener SC youth player from 6 to 16 years old, when he moved to 1. Mainz 05 in
2006 but played in the youth team until  he broke through into the senior squad in 2009. 

Chelsea will hope the young German will perform up to their standards and even surpass them as 
be a key player in Chelsea's title push in the 2013-14 season! The fans hope he will link up well 
with Juan Mata, Oscar and Fernando Torres to create an excellent attack that can tear teams apart 
in both the Prem and the Champions League.
