Kevin De Bruyne: Wanted at Wolfsburg

The Wolves have made no secret of their desire to sign the 22-year-old midfielder and the club's director of sport, Klaus Allofs, believes he will soon be able to sanction the move.

"It's not that we can confirm the deal just yet, but we are no longer so far apart with Chelsea that we can't bridge the differences," he said in the Wolfsburger Nachrichten newspaper.

Chelsea have been reluctant to let De Bruyne go on a permanent deal, even though he has fallen out of favour under Blues boss Jose Mourinho.

The Barclays Premier League club want another loan move for the Belgian, who spent last season at Werder Bremen, scoring 10 goals in 34 appearances.

However, Wolfsburg, who are backed by the German automobile manufacturer Volkswagen and have arguably the biggest spending power in the Bundesliga behind Bayern Munich, prefer a permanent move.

reat games with free flowing atracttive football featuring 4 top teams, showing it is possible to win in the right way entertaining fans at the same time. All the mourinho apologists if you only care about the result why watch the game at all or any game for that matter. It made me laugh how they all turned up on twitter to criticise pep when mourinho couldn't even get this far.
