Youngster is desperate to maintain his starting place for his country at next summer’s World Cup.

The 22-year-old was recalled to Stamford Bridge last summer by returning Blues head coach Jose Mourinho after spending the previous campaign out on loan with Bundesliga side Werder Bremen.
However, the self-styled Special One was understood to be keen to finally give De Bruyne his opportunity in the Chelsea first team after his arrival at the Premier League giants from Belgium side Genk in January 2012 for a fee of £7 million.
But things have not quite worked out according to plan for De Bruyne, who despite featuring in seven matches in total in all competitions for the west Londoners so far in this campaign, has failed to fully convince the Portuguese that he is worth a place in his starting lineup.
And so now it is thought highly likely that Mou will decide to offload the player come the turn of the year, with a return once again to the Bundesliga believed to be his most likely next port of call as Wolfsburg eye a move for De Bruyne in January.
