Kevin De Bruyne: Unfazed by reports of an imminent exit at Chelsea

Kevin De Bruyne: Unfazed by reports of an imminent exit at Chelsea

The 22-year-old was dropped from the Blues' squad for a UEFA Champions League clash with Steaua Bucharest at the start of October, fuelling speculation that he could soon be heading out of Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho reacted angrily to questioning on the subject when quizzed pre-match, maintaining that the decision to leave De Bruyne out had been based purely on past performance.

He offered no indication that the Belgium international had been scrubbed from his thoughts, with the door left open for a first-team recall.

A number of clubs in Germany have, however, expressed an interest in taking De Bruyne back to the Bundesliga after seeing him shine during a loan spell at Werder Bremen last season.

De Bruyne has been left puzzled by the reports, though, as he considers his working relationship with Mourinho to be healthy.

He said ahead of Tuesday's World Cup qualifier with Wales: "Am I panicking? Of course not. Honestly, I'm not worried. You seem to be more worried than me.

"Mourinho is the boss and he decides who plays. He tells me when I've done something wrong, but I've heard nothing as negative from him as what I've been reading in the media.

"I chose to stay (instead of going on loan) and I have no regrets. I continue to fight hard. My chance will come.

"I'm really not concerned about finding a solution in January. That we will have to see."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
