Belgium wants to play regularly, hence his decision to return to Germany.
Chelsea midfield player Kevin De Bruyne would rather play for Bundesliga giants Borussia Dortmund next season than under new Blues head coach Jose Mourinho, according to reports in the Sun.
The exciting young Belgium international has been at Stamford Bridge for the past year and a half now, having originally signed for the west London club from Belgium outfit Genk for £7 million on a five-and-a-half-year deal in Jan 2012.
However, in the intervening 18 months the 21-year-old has still to make an actual appearance for Chelsea, having initially been loaned straight back to his parent club in Belgium, before then being deemed surplus to requirements once again by previous Blues trainer Roberto Di Matteo as De Bruyne spent the entire last season on loan once again at Bundesliga outfit Werder Bremen.
And it was the attacking midfield player’s displays for Bremen in the 2012-13 campaign that have caught the eye of the Uefa Champions League runners-up after the player registered an impressive ten goals and ten assists in just his 33 appearances in all competitions for the Germans.
As a result, Dortmund sporting director Michael Zorc has now confirmed that: “We are interested in Kevin De Bruyne and he wants to join our club.”
