Genk wniger Kevin de Bruyne has revealed his frusrsation at his club for not allowing him to move to Chelsea.
The Blues have been tracking the 20-year-old all summer and ahad hoped to add him to their burgeonining Belgian contingent alongside Romelu Lukaku and Thibaut Courtois. Genk have rejected the Londoners’ latest offer but the player himself is unhappy that a dream move has failed to materialise.
“I’m disappointed in the attitude of Genk,” De Bruyne told Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad. “I do not want any controversy, but I’m disappointed in the attitude of Genk.
“Chelsea was a very nice offer, the club wanted me to stay for one year in Genk. I hope it still goes on, because this is a dream for me.”
However, the player’s agent as more upbeat and and has confirmed that negotiations are ongoing with a view to concluding a deal before the 11 pm deadline.
“We are having discussions about a transfer and I have a meeting with Genk and we will have to see what can be resolved,” Patrick de Koster told skysports.com.
“I think the discussions will be very long because I think we will need some time to find the right solution.”
With talks between Chelsea and Porto over the transfer of Alvaro Pereira said to be stalling, the Blues could yet increase their offer to make sure they seal the signing of de Bruyne.
