Kevin de Bruyne admits Chelsea didn?t ?really want me? in revealing article



Former Chelsea player Kevin de Bruyne has opened up on his time at Chelsea and the pathway that ultimately led him to be sold by the club to Wolfsburg for £18 million.

?José was just kind of waiting for me to say something, and finally I said, ?But ? some of these guys have played 15, 20 games. I?ve only played three. So it?s going to be different, no"??

 

?It was so strange. We had a bit of a conversation about me going back out on loan. And Mata was also out of favor at the time, so José said, ?Well, you know, if Mata leaves, then you will be the fifth choice instead of sixth?.?
