The German spoke to Sami Khedira and Mesurt Ozil before joining Chelsea.
New Chelsea signing Andre Schurrle has said that he is looking forward to working with new boss Jose Mourinho and spoke to his German international team mates before signing for his new club, Goal.com reports.
Chelsea announced that they had agreed to sign Schurrle in principle with the transfer fee set to be around £18 million.
The Blues have been interested in signing Schurrle since last summer, when they narrowly missed out on their target.
Now Chelsea have got their man and the German becomes Jose Mourinho’s first signing in his second spell at Stamford Bridge.
Mourinho is one of the reasons why Schurrle choose Chelsea and believes the manager’s nickname, the special one, suits him.
“He really has an special personality and seems cool,” Schurrle said.
The German has been criticised by some for putting his place in next summers World Cup at risk by signing for a club with a big squad but the winger has said that he spoke to Germany coach Joachim Low about the move and Low approved of the transfer.
Schurrle also spoke to Mesurt Ozil and Sami Khedira about his move to Chelsea.
The two Germans played under Mourinho at Real Madrid and encouraged Schurrle to make the move partly because of Mourinho.
