There have been reports in the media that forgotten man Kevin De Bruyne will return to Chelsea next term to try and fight for his place at Stamford Bridge after being loaned out as soon as he signed for the blues last summer.
The young Belgian was supposed to be one of the stars of the future and was set to make a big impact at our club, but he has not even made a single appearance for the club, but when the entire 2012/13 is over, he will return to Stamford Bridge ready to challenge for a starting berth.
The 21-year-old is, however, is under no illusions about the fact that we have so many world-class stars in his position and he faces a very tough battle to get much game time under his belt, which could mean he actually goes back out on loan or could leave the club he hasn’t played for yet.
As quoted on Sky Sports he said: “I am definitely going to spend pre-season with Chelsea. After that, we will see what happens.
“I know it will be very tough for me to accept being just a substitute. I know I would become extremely unhappy.
“I want to play every match and if that doesn’t happen at Chelsea, then perhaps I will have to find a club that are a bit lower in standard.”
He is a bright young talent with a big future at the club and although we do not need another attacking midfielder, we have seen enough of him to assume that he would be a valuable asset to our club in the long run.
