Schurrle wraps up Wolfsburg move

Andre Schurrle has completed his move to Wolfsburg, paving the way for Fiorentina’s Juan Cuadrado to join Chelsea.

The 24-year-old arrived from Bayer Leverkusen 18 months ago and last summer helped Germany win the World Cup.

However, Schurrle has found it tough to break into Jose Mourinho’s starting line-up at Stamford Bridge and has now returned to his homeland to join Wolfsburg.

A tweet from the Bundesliga club confirmed the move.

Schurrle has changed his Twitter biography to “VFL Wolfsburg” and the move likely means Cuadrado will complete his move to Chelsea before Monday’s 11pm deadline.

The 26-year-old was one of the players of last year’s World Cup and looks set to join from Fiorentina for a fee which will reportedly rise to his £26.8million release clause.

Cuadrado was at Stamford Bridge on Saturday for the 1-1 draw with Manchester City, while the move could see Mohamed Salah move the other way.
