Chelsea star in talks over a permanent move to Anderlecht

Anderlecht have revealed that they are in talks with Chelsea starlet Kevin de Bruyne over a move that will see him leave Stamford Bridge, according to the Metro.

The Belgian playmaker has struggled so far under Jose Mourinho, and as such has been strongly linked with a departure in January.

And now it looks as though he has taken another step closer to the exit door, with Anderlecht manager Herman Van Holsbeeck revealing that there is a chance the Belgian outfit could sign him in the upcoming winter transfer window.

De Bruyne has previously expressed his desire to be shipped out on loan after Christmas, in order to garner some regular playing time, but according to Van Holsbeeck a permanent move is a viable option in January, with negotiations between the two parties already having occurred.

"Kevin could come to Anderlecht in January – there’s a big chance," the Anderlecht boss said.

"It’s not an easy deal, but it is something we are investigating. The World Cup being next year makes this possible – he wants regular football so he makes the competition."

Mourinho is thought to be keen on keeping De Bruyne at the club for the long-term, and would no doubt prefer a loan deal rather than a permanent move, but the 22-year-old is well below a host of stars in the pecking order for a midfield position and may have to move if he holds any ambitions of playing on a regular basis.
