Chelsea regret selling us Kevin De Bruyne, claim Wolfsburg
Wolfsburg claim that Chelsea are now regretting having sold Kevin De Bruyne to the Bundesliga club
Chelsea have come to regret selling Kevin De Bruyne to Wolfsburg, according to the German club’s general manager Klaus Allofs.
The 23-year-old joined the Blues from Genk in 2012 but struggled to earn a regular spot in Jose Mourinho’s first-team after returning to Stamford Bridge from a successful loan spell at Werder Bremen.
De Bruyne joined Wolfsburg last January in an £18m deal and has been in impressive form for the Bundesliga side.
He has scored eight goals and made 11 assists in 20 Bundesliga appearances for Wolfsburg this term to help his side up to second in the table.
And Allofs claims that Belgium international De Bruyne is still being closely monitored by his former Premier League employers.
“At Chelsea they watch with appreciation as Kevin has developed,” Allofs is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.
“They’ve seen it confirmed why they were reluctant to let him leave.”
De Bruyne, who has also scored three times in the Europa League this season, made a total of just nine first-team appearances for Chelsea before his eventual transfer to Wolfsburg last January.
