Chelsea flop considering £40m transfer to Manchester City

Wolfsburg star Kevin de Bruyne has revealed that an offer from Manchester City could be too hard to turn down, according to reports from the Express.

De Bruyne has been heavily linked with a move away from Wolfsburg in recent weeks, with the likes of Bayern Munich also reportedly keen on the attacking midfielder.

The Belgium international only left Chelsea to the Bundesliga side last summer after being seen surplus to requirements by Blues manager Jose Mourinho, but an impressive campaign at the Volkswagen Arena has seen him become one of the most coveted players in the transfer market.

But despite Wolfsburg claiming that it is almost certain he won’t be leaving Germany this summer, the 24-year-old will consider his options before deciding his immediate future.

“Of course you can’t ignore it. Everyone knows the teams,” he told The Sun.

“They all play for the title. That is not nothing.

“But at this moment I have not heard that there is a bid for me.

“If an offer does come, I will hear about it and how much it is — but I have not yet heard anything.”

The Citizens are planning to make a £40million bid for De Bruyne, with talks reportedly already taking place between the two sides.

During 51 games in all competitions last season, De Bruyne scored 16 goals and made an incredible 28 assists.
