Kevin De Bruyne could be on the move

Ex-Chelsea star Kevin De Bruyne could be leaving Germany this summer, just 18 months after joining Die Wolfe.

De Bruyne has had a very successful period in the Bundesliga since his £22m move last January. 

De Bruyne leaving Chelsea is possibly the only thing that 'the Special One' has done wrong in his most recent term at Chelsea. De Bruyne, 23, impressed a lot of top clubs during his time at KRC Genk, eventually earning himself a £7m move to Stamford Bridge. 

Similar to former Blues forward Romelu Lukaku, De Bruyne found first team opportunities scarce at Chelsea, and eventually opted for a move back to the Bundesliga after a successful loan spell at Werder Bremen during the 2012/13 season.

De Bruyne eventually found himself at VFL Wolfsburg, despite interest from Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen, and hasn't looked back since. De Bruyne has established himself as one of the best attacking midfielders in Europe, and has been linked with sides like PSG, Chelsea and both Manchester clubs recently.

Despite only moving to the Volkswagen Arena last January, ITV has reported that De Bruyne is not ruling out a summer exit. 

"You never know what will happen in football.

"A club might step in and make an offer that pleases Wolfsburg and also makes me happy.

"Right now, I say that I will stay in Wolfsburg." said De Bruyne, who's contracted with the Wolfs until 2019.

"But I don't like it when players say they'll stay no matter what and are gone after the first offer."

However, Kicker in Germany reports that Wolfsburg will be looking for a remarkable €80m to part with the talented Belgium international - a figure which may well put off potential suitors.

Will De Bruyne leave Wolfsburg? Were Chelsea wrong not to hold onto him?
