Chelsea youngster Kevin De Bruyne admits he is uncertain over his future at the club, and has not yet spoken with Jose Mourinho about his role in the team next season, ESPN reports.

The 21-year-old is a highly rated young talent, and was signed by the Blues from Genk for £7million in January 2012, though he has yet to make an appearance for the club after loan spells back at Genk and in the Bundesliga with Werder Bremen.

The Belgian has gained positive reviews for his performances in Germany this season, and Borussia Dortmund have expressed a strong interest in signing him as a replacement for star player Mario Goetze, who has left the club for Bayern Munich.

Bayer Leverkusen have also been keen to sign him as part of a deal to bring long-time Chelsea target Andre Schurrle to Stamford Bridge, though the two clubs remain locked in talks over the German winger.

With the World Cup approaching next summer, De Bruyne says his priority is to be playing regular first-team football, as he is expected to feature in the Belgian national team alongside fellow Chelsea team mates Eden Hazard and Romelu Lukaku.

Asked if he had spoken with Mourinho, he said: “Not yet. I think the time will come. The season is over now so we’ll see what happens.

“The most important thing for me is just to play my game. I know myself and I won’t be stressed when I am on the bench.

“I’m always trying to do my best for the team and I had a great season [with Bremen]. I need to play a lot of games, and also with the World Cup it’s very important.”

Fellow Chelsea and Belgium youngster Lukaku also looked set for another season out on loan next season, but appears to have worked his way into Mourinho’s plans, which could be an encouraging sign for De Bruyne.
