Chelsea outcast De Bruyne eyeing permanent exit

Published 1 Comments

Kevin de Bruyne could be set for a departure from Stamford Bridge, with reports suggesting that the Belgian playmaker wants to leave Chelsea.

According to Belgian newspaper Sportwereld, Jose Mourinho's recent assurances of more chances of first-team football have not changed the thinking of the Belgium international and De Bruyne is seeking a move away from West London - preferably on a permanent transfer.

22-year-old De Bruyne - who is an important figure for his international side with 18 senior caps to his name - arrived at Chelsea from Jupiler Pro League outfit Genk in January 2012, but has never managed to establish himself in the Premier League.

Clearly not part of the first-team plans at Stamford Bridge last season, the attacking midfielder spent the entire campaign in Germany on loan at Werder Bremen. He made 33 appearances in the Bundesliga, scoring 10 goals and supplying nine assists.

He returned to Chelsea in the summer, and hopes were high that he could finally impose himself at the club following his impressive loan stint.

However, despite starting for the opening day victory over Hull City in what was Jose Mourinho's first competitive fixture back at the club, De Bruyne has gone on to make just two more appearances in the top-flight.

If De Bruyne were indeed to leave Chelsea in the near future, it appears as if a return to Germany could be on the cards with Wolfsburg reportedly keen on securing his signature.
