In-Demand Chelsea Wide Man May Now Be Heading To Bayer Leverkusen In January

Winger has found himself out of favour with the Blues of late. 

The future of unsettled Chelsea midfield player Kevin de Bruyne will be decided next week when the Belgium’s agent holds face-to-face talks with the Uefa Europa League holders at Stamford Bridge, according to reports in the Daily Mail.

The 22-year-old’s days as a Blues player now appear to be over, despite returning Chelsea head coach Jose Mourinho having recalled de Bruyne from his loan spell with Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen at the end of last season.

The self-styled Special One was determined to finally give de Bruyne his long-waited opening in the Chelsea first team this season, with the Belgium international having first arrived in the capital from Genk in January 2012 on a five-and-a-half-year deal for a transfer fee of £7 million.

However, until the wide man featured in Chelsea’s opening Premier League contest of the new campaign at home to newly promoted Hull City, he had still to play even a single minute of football for his new team.

But despite featuring in eight matches in total so far this season, it now looks as though de Bruyne will once again find himself surplus to requirements at Chelsea come January, with a number of big-name Bundesliga outfits all lining up to capture the youngster on loan next month.

And the player’s representative, Patrick de Koster, has now confirmed that: “I will fly to London next week to find a solution with Chelsea. Should Kevin be allowed to leave, I will call [Bayer Leverkusen squad manager] Michael Reschke within 30 minutes. We have an excellent relationship.

“Dortmund, Gladbach, Schalke and Wolfsburg have also been in touch with me. Kevin will take a look at where is best for him.”
