Chelsea starlet’s agent in Madrid for talks

Published Add your comment

Kevin de Bruyne’s agent has flown to Madrid to discuss a loan move to Atletico from Chelsea, according to reports.

The Daily Mail claims the 22-year-old has realised he is not part of Jose Mourinho’s first team plans in west London, and is carefully considering his next move.

Whilst the paper claims he is not particularly keen to leave the Blues on another short-term deal, it also goes on to state that guaranteed first team football might be the only way for De Bruyne to secure his place at the World Cup with Belgium.

Atletico Madrid can’t definitely offer that however, and so the switch to La Liga appeals less for the former Genk sensation.

De Bruyne signed for Chelsea in January 2012, but spent the rest of that season in his homeland gaining more first team experience.

He was then shipped out to Werder Bremen last season, spending a season in the Bundesliga and generally impressing.

Back at Stamford Bridge, the youngster finally got his chance this season, and has played three Premier League games for the title chasers thus far.

However, he’s fallen down the Chelsea pecking order, and is now expected to make a move away from west London in the New Year.

The Blues are yet to confirm if he can leave though, meaning De Bruyne is currently playing the waiting game on the King’s Road.
