The Dutch international has been targeted by Schuster since the German took over at the Bernabeu from Fabio Capello earlier this summer, even though he is currently on the Blues´ pre-season tour of the USA.
Reports have suggested Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has insisted the 23-year-old will not be sold at any price, but Schuster told Spanish television: "I think we´ll succeed. It doesn´t worry me even if he´s not here for the first Liga game, because he´s already in pre-season training and thus we won´t see any physical problems."
