Chelsea fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are wondering what could have been after Sky Sports revealed that Kevin De Bruyne could be returning to the Premier League with Manchester City.
The Belgium international was only given two starts under Jose Mourinho before turning into one of the best centre attacking midfielders in Europe.
He has had superb season with Wolfsburg and he was named the best player in the Bundesliga, so it is safe to say he has proven his critics wrong.
The 23-year-old has told Sky Sports News HQ that City had made “informal contact” but the final decision would lie with Wolfsburg.
De Bruyne is only one season into his five year deal and he is already being linked with a move back to the top of the Premier League.
Punters would not be surprised if the midfielder repaid the faith that the German club showed in him by staying on at least for another season.
