BRUYNE MOVING ON
The Chelsea midfielder, Kevin de Bruyne, might make a move away from Stamford Bridge during the mid-season transfer window. His agent, Patrick de Koster, has hinted that.
De Bruyne is currently practicing with U-21 team of Chelsea. He has been made to do that after his poor outing in the Capital One Cup game against Swindon Town.
The new Chelsea boss, Jose Mourinho, had shown some faith in de Bruyne at the start of the ongoing season and had given him starting opportunities in the first couple of Premier League games, but, the Belgian winger couldn’t stand up to the manager’s expectations and lost his place in the starting line up.
Mourinho gave de Bruyne another chance though and brought him back into the team for the match against Swindon Town, but, he looked in awful nick again and after that, the Chelsea boss decided that the Belgian youngster would train with the youth team.
The German club VfL Wolfsburg has shown some interest in de Bruyne. Talking to the reporters yesterday, the manager of Wolfsburg Dieter Hecking said, “We wanted to have Kevin during the pre-season transfer window, but, Chelsea was not ready to sell him. We haven’t given up yet though. We still want the player.”
According to de Bruyne’s representative Koster, he will talk to Wolfsburg if the player decides to make a move in January.
Koster said, “If Kevin looks to make a move abroad at the start of next year, we will get in touch with Wolfsburg.”
“In England, many players are asked to train with the youth team. It’s not something which can be considered as punishment.”
De Bruyne had joined Chelsea at the start of the last season after leaving the Belgian club Racing Genk.
