Blues’ big-money deal edging closer.
Chelsea are close to agreeing a deal to sell Andre Schurrle, which would then speed up their move to sign Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina, according to the Daily Mail.
The Blues have long been linked with the Colombian international, also a rumoured target for Manchester United, and it now looks as though a deal could be done in time for the weekend.
Chelsea play Manchester City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening, and Jose Mourinho will now be hoping to have his exciting new signing available for selection.
Schurrle is wanted by both Wolfsburg and Borussia Dortmund and is edging closer to an exit worth around £30m to Chelsea.
