Schurrle: I long dreamed of playing for Chelsea

Chelsea winger Andre Schurrle admits his move to Stamford Bridge is a dream come true.

The German international joined Chelsea from Bayer Leverkusen over the summer.

"I had this dream for a long time and it was a dream to play for Chelsea and not for another club," Schurrle told Sky Sports.

"I saw Michael Ballack play here and he was my idol, so it was a dream to come here - it was a specific Chelsea dream.

"It was a big time for the club, so many big players here, they had six or seven national team captains and I enjoyed watching it, and I remember watching them in semi-finals against Barcelona, I had it in my head I wanted to achieve this and get there and I am happy it comes to this."
