Chelsea won't sell Kevin De Bruyne

Chelsea look set to dash Kevin De Bruyne's hopes of leaving Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis.


De Bruyne signed for the Blues from Genk two years ago, but he has been sent out on loan twice -- first back to Genk, and then to Werder Bremen.

The Belgium international has only started two English Premier League games for the Blues since he returned to London last summer.

The midfielder’s agent Patrick De Koster met with Chelsea officials last week and yesterday he revealed that his client wants to leave. De Koster claims Juventus and Atletico Madrid have shown interest in De Bruyne, but said the player wants to return to Germany, with Wolfsburg being his preferred option.

But despite his wishes, PA Sport understands that Chelsea will not consider selling De Bruyne. It is understood that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho will give De Bruyne more playing time in January.
