De Bruyne set to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place

De Bruyne set to stay at Chelsea and fight for his place

Kevin De Bruyne is determined to stay at Stamford Bridge and fight for his place in the starting XI, after receiving guarantees from Mourinho he is part of his plans.

The highly-rated 21-year-old Belgian joined the Blues from Genk for £6.7 million and was loaned out to Werder Bremen to gain necessary first-team experience. He impressed both the fans and the visiting scouts with his performances. As a result, the recent speculation linked him with a move to Borussia Dortmund and Bayer Leverkusen.

And yet, it looks like De Bruyne is looking to stay at Stamford Bridge, with his agent Patrick De Koster insisting Jose Mourinho assured the player he has a future at Chelsea after Belgium’s 2-1 victory over Serbia.

He said: “Mr Mourinho gave a phone call to Kevin, explaining a little bit the situation for next season. We didn’t receive any guarantees, but it’s normal in a team like Chelsea. It’s up to him to prove like he did in the last 18 months. A year and a half ago when he signed a contract at Chelsea, it was like a dream which became reality. Afterwards it was important for Kevin to put the right steps at the right moments.

“Kevin wants to play. Playing football, he became a better football player. I think he proved it staying six months more in Genk and last season in Bremen. He did very well. Now it’s up to him to prove the same thing at Chelsea,” he added.
