Published Add your comment

Kevin De Bruyne has admitted he is thinking over his options amid interest from Manchester City.

De Bruyne, who was recently named Bundesliga Player of the Season, has been heavily linked with a move to Man City. The club are believed to be making a bid to the tune of £40 million for the 24-year-old. 

However, they may be forced to break their transfer record once again, as Wolfsburg value the player at £57 million.

'Something special'

Speaking to Kicker, the Wolfsburg midfielder said: “I don’t know where I will play next season.

“I just have to train well and make sure that I am fully fit. We will then see what happens.

"But it is always something special when big clubs show an interest in you. Of course, I am thinking about it."

Not about the money

Meanwhile, Wolfsburg sporting director Klaus Allofs has told City they plan to keep the player, insisting that the club do not need their money

"We are not a selling club," said Allofs "and in the project of Wolfsburg we want to compete one day with Bayern Munich and you need these kind of players."


De Bruyne only left the Premier League less than 18 months ago, after falling out of favour at Chelsea. 

The winger only made nine appearances for the London club and spent a long period of time out on loan before moving to Germany for £15.2 million. 

Mourinho says he has no regrets letting the Belgian go, claiming that he was better suited to a club "where he knows he can play every game."

But De Bruyne hit back at José, saying his former boss was just making excuses for selling him.  

"I didn’t want to stay at a club where I wasn’t even playing for 10 minutes." Argued De Bruyne, "He said it was my attitude in training? It is an excuse he can use.

“But no-one can say that as they haven’t seen me train. I don’t think that in Belgium or in the Bundesliga they have complained about this.

"That is the way it is. I am not angry. When I was transferred to Wolfsburg, Chelsea got their money. Everyone was happy.”
