De Bruyne waiting on Chelsea

On-loan Werder Bremen midfielder Kevin de Bruyne remains keen to return to Chelsea but admits he is in the dark over whether his future lies at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues bought the Belgium international from Genk last January but he spent the remainder of last term with his old club before being sent out to Bremen on loan for the current campaign.

De Bruyne is yet to make a senior appearance for Chelsea and has been linked with another move in the summer, with clubs in the Bundesliga thought to be targeting the 21-year-old.

The youngster admits he does not know if he has a future at Chelsea but remains eager to play for the Premier League side.

Asked if he still wanted to ply his trade at Stamford Bridge, he told Sky Sports: "That's the reason that I signed there last year.

"I want to show everyone at Chelsea that I can play there. But at the moment I don't know what Chelsea want to do with me, so it's difficult to say what's going to happen with me in the next year, or years. I have to just wait."

De Bruyne has won 10 caps for Belgium after making his senior debut in 2010 and scored his second goal for his country in the 2-0 win in Macedonia in World Cup qualifying last Friday.

The midfielder believes playing on the international stage has shown he can compete at a Premier League level.

De Bruyne said: "International (football) is also at a very high level so I think you can compare it with Chelsea because all the players in our national team also play at big clubs in England and all over the world."

Chelsea's Eden Hazard scored the other goal in Belgium's victory on Friday and De Bruyne says he enjoys playing alongside him.

He added ahead of Tuesday's home game with Macedonia: "I love to play with Eden. We've played together for a long time already for the national team at the same age."

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...

Please Stop Telling Us What To Think

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.
