Chelsea are willing to put almost 50 million towards signing Bayer Leverkusen winger Andre Schurrle.Express says Chelsea are prepared to pay 25 million to Bayer for the Germany international, whose camp has also been offered a five year contract worth 4.8 million-a-season.
Ingo Haspel, Bayer's transfer advisor, was in London last Friday to thrash out terms with Chelsea.
Haspel returned to Germany cock-a-hoop as he has also tentatively agreed a 12-month loan for Kevin de Bruyne - for free.
Schalke are convinced they've done well out of negotiations as Schurrle's buyout clause for this summer's market is 25 million.
