Man City Keen On 16 Goals 28 Assists Star But Chelsea Could Sign Him


Kevin De Bruyne

Back in early 2012, few hours before transfer ended on winter transfer deadline day, Chelsea signed Kevin de Bruyne from Genk for 7 million pounds. 7 months afterwards, the Belgian was loaned out to German side, Werder Bremen on a season-long loan. It was normal back then to think Chelsea wanted the midfielder cum winger to go get more action of first-flight European football, in order to become a better player for the club afterwards. He was recalled after the loan and after 3 league games for the Blues, he was sold out finally to VfL Wolfsburg for 18 million pounds. And he has since gone ahead to establish himself as a very key member of the Bundesliga team, appearing 31 times in the league, scoring 10 goals, making 19 assists, which have put them in safe zone for a Champions League appearance next season. So much more for a Chelsea reject.

The Blues’ rivals, Etihad’s owner are now planning on bringing the 23 years old back to the EPL. Although Chelsea once showed interest, and the player wouldn’t mind returning to the side that has 2 of his country mates in the starting 11. But it is Manchester City that are making moves. They are ready to spend 30 million pounds for the services of the player, in order to solidify the squad towards the coming season, after having had a disappointing season with no trophy. However, his club might not be willing to let go, as they will likely want to retain him in order to have him around for the Champions League, but Manchester city wants to put up Edin Dzeko for a swap in order to convince the current 2nd positioned Bundesliga club. Bruyne’s agent, Patrick De Kosser stated early last month,

“First of all we need to discuss things with the leaders of Wolfsburg, with whom Kevin is still under contract for four years. A lot can happen in the meantime. Everything can move fast in football.”

So despite Manchester City’s keen interest, Chelsea can win the race If they so wish.
