Of all the players that have left Chelsea in recent years, probably no one apart from Kevin de Bruyne have made such a terrific impact elsewhere. The 23-year-old has already 20 assists to his name (Bundesliga and Europa League combined), and is rightly dubbed as the “king of assists” in Bundesliga.

His heroics have taken Wolfsburg into second in the table and although they cannot challenge Bayern Munich directly for the title, but the lure of playing in the Champions League next season is more than a handy incentive. 


Wolfsburg are keen to keep hold of the star playmaker but for how long? The German club understand that top European clubs including the likes of Bayern Munich, Manchester City and PSG are vying for his signature. 

Manchester United are also thought to be interested in him, with plethora of reports have linked him with a move in the summer.

The club demands €60m for De Bruyne, and Belgium newspaper HLN reports that PSG and Manchester City have already opened talks.

Popular and reliable journalist Kristof Terreur claims that Manchester City are seriously interested in the Belgian midfielder, while Txiki Begiristain already held talks with the player’s agent. 

Have Chelsea made a mistake in selling De Bruyne? Should Manchester United go for him in summer? Is he worth €60m? Have your say below…
