Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has gone cold on signing Bayer Leverkusen winger Andre Schurrle.

The Sun says he has shelved Chelsea's bid for Schurrle until he has assessed Kevin De Bruyne.

The Blues were close to agreeing a £17million deal for Bayer Leverkusen forward Schurrle, 22.

Leverkusen want Chelsea winger De Bruyne, 21, as part of the move but Mourinho is refusing to part with the Belgian international until he has seen him in pre-season training.
