Milan have prepared to battle it out with Chelsea for the German prospect…
Milan lost again this weekend which sees them continue to struggle in Serie A after selling both Ibrahimovic and Silva to PSG this summer, as well as Cassano to their local rivals Inter. The team are 15th in the Italian league and have only managed four goals in their four matches so far, putting the ball into the back of the net is something of a problem for them.
They drew 0-0 at home to Anderlecht in midweek in front of just 20,000 fans and manager Allegri is under huge pressure which could see him lose his job. The club themselves are already looking to rebuild and have been linked, according to Calciomercato, with a move for Andre Schurrle.
The talented ace spent all summer at the center of transfer speculation involving Chelsea and he wasn’t happy with the way his club, Bayer Leverkusen, dealt with the situation. Last month he told German magazine Kicker, “Chelsea would have been very interesting for me. This kind of opportunity you get probably not so often in life.”
“Rudi Voeller told me he couldn’t find a suitable replacement, and I was too important for Bayer. I was disturbed that the whole thing was communicated as quickly and as detailed in public.”
The striker fell out with Rudi Voeller, director at Leverkusen, over the situation because he wouldn’t stop talking about it to the press and the former German international told Bild that Schurrle couldn’t get Chelsea out of his head.
However, now that Milan offer the 21-year-old another great opportunity to get away from Levekusen, he may easily jump in.
