Early in the transfer window there were rumors that Wolfsburg were making a bid for midfielder Kevin De Bruyne. Initially, Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho was hesitant to let De Bruyne leave.
Chelsea drew the line at £25 million for De Bruyne, but Wolfsburg was locked in on a £17 million bid. They could’ve found some middle ground in a loan deal.
From the Daily Mail:
Wolfsburg have offered £17million and would prefer to sign the Belgian midfielder on a permanent deal but they may be willing to consider a loan deal with various clauses about what might happen at the end of the season.
De Bruyne has struggled to find playing time and that is key for the Belgian.
The key for De Bruyne is to play regularly ahead of the World Cup and a return to Germany appeals for a player who impressed during a season on loan at Werder Bremen.
The Daily Mail is saying that Wolfsburg has agreed to terms with De Bruyne’s agent, it is all about a deal with Chelsea now.
The German club has agreed terms with De Bruyne’s agents, which means the only thing left is an agreement between the two clubs.
It could prove a major obstacle since Chelsea continue to publicly insist that De Bruyne is not for sale but there is a feeling that this stance has softened in private.
It looks like this deal isn’t quite done and still has a ways to go. FanSided will keep you up to date on it.
