De Bruyne hints at January exit

Belgian midfielder Kevin De Bruyne has revealed that he could leave Chelsea in search of first team football.

Despite impressing in pre-season, the 22-year-old has only been used sparingly this season, and it is perfectly clear he is not satisfied with his status at the club.

Having enjoyed an extremely successful loan spell with Werder Bremen last term, the Belgian international has a long list of admirers in German Bundesliga.

And he has now hinted that he may be prepared to explore other options unless his status at Stamford Bridge improves.

“I know something has to change. Sooner or later, I will have to play. What can I do besides keeping quiet and doing my best in the training sessions? Nothing,” De Bruyne told Het Laatste Nieuws.

Kevin De Bruyne started his career at Genk, but quickly managed to catch the eye of top European clubs with his impressive displays in Belgian Jupiler Pro League.

A switch to Chelsea soon ensued, but things haven’t exactly gone according to plan since. It does appear as though a move to Stamford Bridge was not such a good decision after all.

Chelsea did not make De Bruyne at all… Chelsea bought him two Januarys ago. The second half of the 11/12 season he stayed at Genk. The next season he played for Bremen and ripped the Bundesliga. That’s where he really made his name… BTW, he was being looked at by numerous top level clubs while at Genk. The mistake wasn’t him going to Chelsea… It was the fact that Mourinho decided to buy a million players in the summer and essentially froze out such a giant talent… Chelsea deserve no credit for that…

Are you kidding me?? Chelsea did not make De Bruyne whatsoever… He was being looked at by top tier clubs while at Genk but HE really made a name for himself when he ripped up the Budesliga last year… The mistake wasn’t joining Chelsea. It was the fact Mourinho bought a million and one players and essentially froze out such a giant talent…
