Normally Sky's famous sources tell us to be excited and/or depressed about impending transfers. This time, it's a little bit different. Despite the hype around André Schürrle's potential move to Wolfsburg, some of which is their own, Sky appear to be saying nothing very serious has happened just yet:

Sky sources understand Schurrle would like to join the German side, but that no bids have been made.

A source close to the player said: "It’s a waiting game there are lots of rumours circulating and we do not like to take part in it."

No bids have been made rather rules out the idea that Wolfsburg have offered £23 million for the World Cup Winner and that Chelsea are holding out for a ludicrous-sounding £30 million offer. My guess is that we're once again falling afoul of currency conversion rates and that Chelsea are holding out for a €30 million/£23 million bid and won't sell unless they get it.

With both Juan Cuadrado and Douglas Costa as potential incomings should Schürrle leave, £23 million seems like a perfectly reasonable figure. But there are only a few days left in the transfer window to get anything done, no matter how much progress Sky say we're making.
