Andre Villas-Boas on Friday admitted that Chelsea's pursuit of Kevin de Bruyne had nothing to do with him.

The Blues were this week on the brink of completing the signing of 20-year-old Genk winger De Bruyne, who they have been linked with for several months.

But manager Villas-Boas revealed the decision to fork out a reported £8million for the player had come from above, and said: "You have to speak to the people from the club about that."
