Blues boss warns interested parties to come armed with a blank cheque.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has warned clubs keen on signing Andre Schurrle that the player will only be sold for a phenomenal fee this month, the Metro reports.
The World Cup winner only linked up with the west London side in the summer of 2013, but has so far struggled to establish himself as a regular in the side since coming back from he tournament in South America.
With his future in question, a long line of club’s across Europe are all keen to secure a deal to bring him away from Chelsea before transfer deadline day.
But Mourinho has insisted that he is not particularly looking to cash in on the 24-year-old, and only a massive offer will persuade him to sell.
“The principle is that we would like him to stay,” said Mourinho.
“The question is not whether he is allowed to go or not. The question is not whether we get a good offer.
“The question is whether we have a phenomenal offer and for the player to be super-keen to accept a new challenge in his career, because we don’t want to sell our players.”
