Kevin De Bruyne has moved a step closer to ending his Chelsea nightmare after agreeing personal terms with Wolfsburg ahead of a potential £17m move, according to the Daily Mail.

The Belgian youngster has barely featured this season under Jose Mourinho and has been linked with a a move back to the Bundesliga having enjoyed an excellent season on loan at Werder Bremen last year, where he scored 10 goals and provided 11 assists in just 34 appearances.

It seems he’s left an impression with Wolfsburg as the Mail claim that they have now agreed personal terms with the 22-year-old’s agents and have offered Chelsea £17m to take the attacker back to Germany on a permanent basis.

The Blues have always maintained publicly that De Bruyne was not for sale but the newspaper suggests the West Londoners may be prepared to let the attacker leave on a six month loan deal that includes various clauses about a potential deal in the summer depending on how all parties feel at the end of the season.

Big things were expected of De Bruyne after Chelsea paid Genk £17m for him back in 2012, but he spent the following 18 months out on loan and hasn’t featured in the Premier League this season since way back in September.

With the likes of Willian, Oscar, Eden Hazard, Andre Schurrle and Juan Mata all ahead of him in the pecking order, it seems likely that the Belgian international will be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge this month to secure regular action ahead of the World Cup, but the question will be whether it’s on loan on a permanent move.

    Get the facts straight….Chelsea never paid 17m for KDB from Genk – it was widely reported as being closer to 7m to 9m.
    Hope he is put on loan till the end if the season as I think he could play for Chelsea at some point in the next few seasons.

    Chelsea actually paid 7million pounds and not 17m…He was loaned back to Genk that season&later to Germany with Werder Bremen.Looks like the German Bundesliga sooths him more than EPL

    With belgium national team he aiming high performance in the forthcoming world cup De bruyn should move elsewhere in other to secure regular playing time. It will be hazardous for a player like him to remain on the bench till June when the world cup comes around. In conclusion, a move from chelsea will be a good one for him.

    It will be of better option or decision if he can be loan than selling because he’s also a good, talented and promising player. I think chelsea should learn from MATIC mistake after dismissing him away from S.BRIDGE in cheap price and want him again in signing in huge amount.
    Mourinho should lets him go as loan for having a playing time in favour of the world cup.

      Matic is a prime example. Chelsea need to start thinking of loaning their best young talent to other Premiership clubs though rather than their preference for Dutch clubs at the moment. Players like Pat van Aanholt and Lucas Piazon should be playing regularly in the Premiership for experience RIGHT NOW as they are certainly good enough but instead find themselves playing in a relativley poor Dutch league? I’m sure West Ham could have done with a talent like young Patrick Bamfordleading their line in the last few months. Lucas Piazon would have had a great learning curve under Matinez at Everton. That is the way to bring all of this young talent on and not send them abroad so much.

    Kevin De Bruyne should be loaned out to another Premiership club to gain Premiership experience and for Chelsea to see first hand whether or not he can cut it in this league. He has nothing to prove in the Bundeslegue where besides Munich and Dortmund (and possibly Schalka) there isn’t a great deal else at the moment. He had a terrific Summer tour with the club but then got that nasty injury preventing him going on to the US part of the tour. Too early for the club to cut and run so a loan is the best option at this crucial stage of the lads career.

    Kdb should go, dea iz no, point of him going out 4 a loan, he should go out permanently. We have abudant many young talented players like Hazard junior,Piazon n even Traore. So personally, i found it wise 4 him to go out permanently. 17m iz a gud business even if we got him at figures of around 7-9m dat’s does not mean we shu’d sale him with da same amount we got him with, he iz a super star, n bundesliga champion, so let him go wea he performs da best.

    Kevin is a good player, i dn’t see reason why mourinho can’t give him chance to perform. Had it being that BENITS is still at cfc, we should have seen the best of kevin and mata. Mourinho has a problem.
