Chelsea signing Marin rejected Tottenham move

One of Chelsea’s summer signings, Germany international Marko Marin, has revealed he turned down the chance to move to Tottenham Hotspur in January. According to the Daily Mail, Marin rejected the approach from White Hart Lane because he had his heart set on a switch to Stamford Bridge.



The former Werder Bremen midfielder pointed to the tenure of ex-Germany captain Michael Ballack as a key reason why he wanted to play for Chelsea rather than their London rivals Spurs. The 23-year-old admitted that when Ballack moved to Chelsea in 2006, the eyes of Germany were upon him and his new club.


Marin said: “When Ballack moved to Chelsea everyone in Germany was interested in the club. Ballack was the biggest star in Germany at that time, the captain of the national team.


Ballack played more than 150 games for Chelsea in four years at the club. The midfielder, now without a club after leaving Bayer Leverkusen, scored 26 goals for the Blues and was part of the teams that won the Premier League in 2009-10, the FA Cup on three occasions and the League Cup once.
