The Belgian international has not made the impact that many had hoped for since arriving back from Werder Bremen last term and has been trailed by a number of Bundesliga sides, as well as Atletico Madrid, ever since.
Jose Mourinho held high hopes for the 22-year-old, and has even blamed himself for the player’s lack of inclusion, having not featured him since the end of September.
