Kevin De Bruyne: Is not wanted by Dortmund

Borussia Dortmund manager Jurgen Klopp has denied having an interest in Chelsea midfielder Kevin De Bruyne.

The 22-year-old enjoyed a good pre-season with the Blues and started the games with Hull and Manchester United in the opening weeks of the campaign.

But in recent weeks he has not been involved, which has seen him linked with a move back to Germany.

Werder Bremen - where he impressed last season on loan - have already declared their interest, but Dortmund have ruled themselves out.

"We have signed great players over the summer. We have a squad we are very happy with," Klopp told Deutsche Presseagentur.

"He (Kevin de Bruyne) is actually no one we are after. He is at Chelsea FC and given the size and quality of the Chelsea FC first-team squad it's quite usual he may sometimes miss out on one or two matches."

De Bruyne's agent is also quoted in the German press, ruling out a possible move in January.

"This summer we decided to stay with Chelsea, and we knew the competition would be hard and that Kevin had to fight," Patrick De Koster is quoted by Bild.

"He will continue fighting. I have no contact to other clubs. Even if we were in the transfer period, I would not have any contact."

S

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

F365's Transfer Guide - Part One

I

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
