Chelsea Winger Set For €30m Exit After Lack Of Game Time

Chelsea winger Andre Schurrle could be on his way out from the club after failing to get regular game time according to the independent. Schurrle has appeared 22 times for Chelsea this season but hasn’t completed a full game even once in the Premier League. The German has been a regular only in the Capital One Cup after featuring in three games before being deemed unfit to face Liverpool last week due to an illness. Manager Jose Mourinho has preferred the likes of Eden Hazard, Oscar and Willian ahead of Schurrle and the trio have often produced the goods which has made it difficult for Schurrle. With four more days to go before the transfer window closes, the 24-year old might be angling for a move if he feels he won’t be able to challenge the first team regulars in the remainder of the season. Reports have emerged that Bundesliga side Wolfsburg are looking to sign the attacker for a fee of […] Read more »

Biggest Winners From Bayern Munich’s Winter Training Camp

After a terrific Hinrunde of Bundesliga football, Bayern Munich began their Winter break with great morale, and after three friendly games in Doha, Riyadh and Bochum, the Bavarians look to start 2015 from where they left off. The month long training camp has benefited the whole team in general, but here are the biggest winners from the preparatory month of January: 1. Mitchell Weiser The perpetual will-he-won’t-he enigma of German football. Signed from Koln in 2012 as a bright prospect, Weiser’s development had stagnated completely and made just 4 league appearances since, making people wonder what all the fuss was 3 years ago.  Now, the 20 year old is starting to prove doubters wrong with commendable performances against Qatar XI and Al-Hilal. The winger-cum-fullback was involved in 4 out of the 8 goals scored, and after a barren 2 years at Munich, his confidence will be soaring. With heavy competition from other youngsters as well, Weiser’s contribution in the Ruckrunde […] Read more »
